My church friends, the Birches, received Karen's lovely "autumn birch trees." They commented that "it is quite lively, in coloring!" They are also started a home business and named it, after the Latin genus, which is Betula. They felt my gift had a double significance for them. "Truth is stranger than fiction!" Shipping was a breeze.
