Palaniswami got a call from a local man today. He is leaving the island and has a Japanese maple Tree in a 12-gallon pot that he can’t take with him.
Go on. Would the monastery accept it as a gift, to add to your collection of amazing plants.
Hmmm. Let us think. Ok, enough thinking, yes, we would be honored to give this botanical gem a home. Of course, it does not look like this today, but one day it will, and pilgrims will have one more oh and one more ah!
