money doesn’t grow on trees or does it?

If I have heard that money doesn’t grow on trees one time, I have heard it a thousand times.  As a child, every time I said, “I want”, I was reminded that money doesn’t grow on trees.

So isn’t it cute that my dad, on a recent visit, brought me a money tree! Yes a real- live money tree. It’s a cute little tree about a foot tall. I was curious as to why in the world it was called a money tree- clearly it’s leaves had no resemblance to money.

The Pachira aquatica or “money tree” refers to the story of its origin. In the story, a poor man prayed for money, found this “odd” plant, took it home as an omen, and made money selling plants grown from its seeds.

So, I think I may try this tactic and sell some trees to pay for all of the things “I want”!!!!

Thanks for the tree! It’s a great reminder that “money doesn’t grow on trees”!!!
