I'm a Fig, husband is an Apple, and neither fits us totally - only 1/2 right.  Go fig-ure!  Perhaps we have been wrongfully grafted to another tree?  LOL!

I am the weeping willow ...

This may sound rather frightening, but that describes me to a tee!  (Cept for the beautiful part LOL)

Of his bones are coral made,
Those are pearls that were his eyes;
Nothing of him that doth fade
But doth suffer a sea-change
Into something rich and strange...

I am a Pine (feb 25) - which in itself is fitting as I LOVE Pine trees.

I am indeed idealistic, trustworthy and active and I adore agreeable company...

BUT - lets see - seldom friendly? NOPE - I am ever friendly. Practical? Only sometimes!! And I NEVER give up.

Hehe - so, half right I suppose.
