Thinking outside the peach basket

Proof that you can achieve success under circumstances that no one would imagine. This is a peach tree. I pass it daily while walking Baxter. At its peak, before its owner picked the ripest ones a few days ago, it had dozens of peaches on it. Now it has just those late-ripening peaches (of which there are more than the two seen here). 

The significance of this is that the tree in question is right smack in the middle of an urban neighborhood. Who would've thought a tree could grow healthy peaches on a street lined with rowhouses? Apparently, these people did, and they thought right. 

Don't fall victim to limiting thoughts.

How awesome! I have to admit, I was not expecting this tree to be in South Philly. Too bad more people don't put some greenery in urban areas, but this is definitely a good start.

A Tree Grows in Philly :)
