We are so excited for fall this year, to watch our new maple trees do their job of being beautiful. And as I went looking for the old post about our baby maple trees, I realized I never blogged it. Well, in early May we bought two maple trees. (a side note: I see when I go through my pictures looking for tree pictures that I never did blog about spring break trip… or the last two kid birthdays… oops.)
So pretty! Well, these trees have grown a lot this year. And Tree Tall (we have Tree Tall and Tree Wide) even housed a nest of baby birds!
Here they are mid-June…
and here is baby bird nest. I didn’t ever get a picture of baby birds, though.
Tree Wide is still mostly green. It’s so cool how the color goes from top down, and tips of the leaves in. Perfect for a science discussion with the kids!
We’re looking forward to piles of red leaves to rake. Carl and Humorous Thinker got going on fall yard work anyway, even with just a few leaves.
