Where the Rubber Meets the Rose

Jun 01, 2024 09:00AM ● By Linda Stager

My friend Amy has this tree in her front yard. She adds the roses in the swing but hasn’t told me why. Maybe there’s no reason. Still, the contrast between the ancient bark and fresh roses swooning over the rubber tire tells a story. This tree calls to me whenever I see it—in fact I often drive especially to visit it at sunrise just like I did the foggy morning I took this photo.
