Tree Time

Back on May 5, I wrote about our little dwarf spruce putting out buds. I'm happy to see that the tree continues to grow.

Healthy Little Tree

All of the buds have produced growth, and there seems to be more to come. Lisa keeps it mostly out of direct sunlight and waters it regularly.

Two days earlier, I wrote about the tree beside the front porch, which I'd reduced to mostly just sticks last autumn. It is roaring back to life.

Welcome to the Jungle Brushing Up

The first photo was taken May 24th. The second was taken today. There's noticeable new growth in just the three days between these photos.

It won't be long before that porch tree gets so adventurous that I'll have to trim it back so that we can use the front steps.
