4.1.09 trees

My husband rarely meets a tree seed or nut he doesn't plant. Various citrus fruit seeds, not sure which is which, hundreds of acorns, every avacado we eat, and apple seeds too. Only the ones from the fruit that tasted good, of course.

Lilac leaves. The lilac was sick last year, and early this spring we discovered we hadn't removed a clear plastic band that was choking the poor thing at the base of the trunk. It seems much happier now.

The red maple leaves are really coming in.

My husband's work often takes him to the mountains. He "rescues" baby trees that don't have much chance of survival and brings them home. The same is true of our dog. Rescued from a mountain in Inuyama City. Really!
