Tenacious Trees

The trees I planted behind my classroom survived my absence! Yay!

Before Christmas, I was watering them daily by filling milk jugs with water. It was tedious, but if I could get them to survive until winter – the rainy season – then they would be fine.

They made it! It rained regularly while I was in Nebraska. The proof is in all the green grass surrounding the trees.

Now I will only have to water them if there is a long dry spell. And I’ll have to make sure the grass doesn’t choke the trees out.

    Hooray for survival! It is interesting to think of a full-grown tree and realize that so much could have happened to squash it when it was little – drought, grass, a hungry rabbit, a wayward foot……

    So when is your winter?

    How exciting to see your hard work working! Go tree! Go brad! It’s great to watch it grow with you!
