Late Bloomer

A trivial little article but I like it.

From Treehugger...
A rare tree in Ireland is proving that it's never too late to try something new. Some 90 years after being planted on an estate outside of Belfast, a Goat Horn tree, native to China, is flowering for the very first time.

According to a report from Sky News, the tree is a descendent of a specimen brought to Ireland from China in 1908, and one of only two Goat Horn trees that still survives in the country. Being flower-shy doesn't appear to run in the family, however; the other tree has bloomed several times over the last nearly 100 years.
