This past Fall, Mr. C planted a tree in the front yard.
In the Spring, we had found what appears to be a Red Maple trying to grow very close to the house foundation. Red Maples are a bit weedy around here, meaning they can seem to easily grow just about anywhere. I didn’t want it so close to the house, so we dug it up and put it in a small pot to see how it was doing before we found a permanent spot.
In the Fall, we picked a spot in the front yard and Mr. C helped to plant the new tree.
When Winter came, I built a small protective cover out of some wood scraps. I thought it might help to protect the little tree from piles of snow.
As Spring approaches now, Mr. C can’t wait to see how the little tree is going to do in the coming year. I hope it has survived the Winter, it’s still covered by about ten feet of piled up snow. It’s somewhere under this pile of snow!
