Naturally Occurring?

When I was a kid, I was acutely aware that money didn't grow on trees. My parents made that very clear.

No one ever said anything about gum balls, though.

A girl can always dream. I think this tree has sprouted a few jaw-breakers, too.

It's been so long since I chomped down on a real gum ball. I think I know what I'm going to buy with my penny candy money today.

Adorable, colorful tree! And I love how it evokes gum balls. I have to warn you, though, they taste better in your memory than in real life.

This is so cute! Boy I heard about money NOT growing on trees way too many times growing up. I like your gumballs. Like you it has been a long time since I had a gumball. I wonder how many pennies it will take you to buy them today!
