Two posts in two weeks about trees, heck you would think I was a tree hugger.
Coach’s Mom and step dad have a sweet house at Lake Okeechobee. They have a very large oak tree that drops lots of seeds which then shoot up as lil’ baby trees.
Years ago, shortly after we moved into our home, they gave us 8 baby trees. They could not have been more than 12” tall at the time.
We planted them all. It wasn’t even arbor day!
One of them shot up much faster than the others and is now our very favorite tree.
The tree. approx 12 years old.
(is that a flying boxer under our tree?)
It is home to numerous bird nests.
Here is the “big” tree in background with one of it’s siblings in front. See the size difference? Is there such a thing as tree steroids? If so, this tree is juiced up.
Perhaps one day, both of these trees will have swings…I imagine children enjoying countless hours of cloud watching; daydreaming.
Daydreaming; it does a soul good.
