When they got to the meadow, Jerome and Felicity put down their tote bag. Jerome pulled out a small shovel. Felicity pulled out a small plant in a pot.

“Where shall we plant the little peach tree?” she asked Jerome.

“Let’s put it over here in the sun,” she answered.

They dug a hole and carefully removed the little tree from it’s pot. They set the seedling carefully in the hole and filled the hole with dirt. Then, they watered it from a water bottle they had brought along.

“In a few years, we’ll be able to sit in its shade,” Felicity said.

“And maybe make our own peach jam!” Jerome replied.

For now, they were happy to take a break sitting next to their new tree.
