The tree is a real feature in my garden. As a metaphor it has strong roots to weather any storms and a huge canopy to shelter me from the heat of challenges. The small white flowers attract bees, so represent opportunity to grow anew each day. The leaves are small representing potential and the nuts that drop all year round demonstrate as a healthy ability to shed that which no longer serves me well. The many birds that sit in it's branches represent my networking abilities to connect people.
