From Baby Trees to Beautiful

April 27, 2018

Fifteen years ago I made a donation to the Arbor Day Foundation and received a bag of 10 blue spruce "sticks."  They sure didn't look like much!

I planted all 10 in a "nursery" area in my yard. Five survived their first year.

When I moved the next year, I took two of them with me and planted them in my empty backyard. These are my baby trees 13 years later.
