Our Tree

front yard tree

We moved into our present house in July, five years ago. There was a slight drought going on at the time and the tree in our front yard was dead. The builders agreed they would replace the tree. And they did….during the extreme heat. It didn’t make it. So once again another tree was planted. The new tree was burned on the backside and we were doubtful~ but we watered it, fertilized it, had a tree guy take a look at it, andΒ worried a bit more.Β  Was it worth all the trouble? You betcha. πŸ™‚

It’s the little things, right?

  12. Yes, it is the little things. And day after day after day…. they add up.

  13. Such a pretty color of the leaves. The ice storm and lightning did a fatal number on my colorful trees, and I miss their fall offerings. Great photo, so peaceful.
