Underneath that wrapping paper of a cover is a tree. It, like the other smaller trees in my community, has been covered all winter. The smaller trees have been uncovered, but this one still needs protecting from the cool nights, I guess. As soon as they unwrap it, I’m going to do a happy dance, as it will signify that spring is finally, officially here. And then, a week later, because it is what Shanghai does, it will be summer.
