Quandary Resolution 1629
salina, zoochory, minuscule, gormandize
Although the seeds of the devilwood (a plant that tolerates the brackish soil next to the salina) evolved for endozoochory in the digestive tracts of wildlife, this particular one opted for exozoochory on the sleeve of Mrs. Perkins' sweatshirt, by means of which she carried it into the handkerchief-size yard of the minuscule cottage next door where it fell, sprouted, and grew into the robust evergreen you see today, whose profusion of small, dark blue drupes provide an opportunity for much seasonal gourmandizing by the native bird population.
