some think the Katsura tree smells like caramel or cotton candy when it loses it's leaves in the fall. Besides being wonderful to smell in the fall, the Katsura sports a lovely blend of orange-, raspberry- and apricot-coloured leaves. In the spring Katsura has reddish-purple new growth, in summer it sports heart-shaped blue-green leaves and in winter the gray, slightly exfoliating bark lends interest.

Forget waking up to the nudging nose a cat or dog — fish keep to themselves and won't wake you up at 5:30 a.m. on the weekend. A mesmerizing pet that you can visit at your leisure doesn't come often. But that's okay, we all love our four-legged friends and would never really trade them for a school of fish. Their calmness is just an added bonus.
