A couple of months ago we transplanted a small pine tree that had been growing too close to the house in hopes that it would take and grow in its new spot. It looked good for awhile but within the last two weeks it went downhill and died. On Saturday Chris found a larger loblolly pine to replace the one that had died and since our niece was in town she decided to ‘help’ him plant it. It was mostly resembling a DOT crew in that he did all the work and we stood around and watched. Hopefully this one will ‘take’ and we’ll have another pine tree to replace some of the ones that died in the 2011 drought.
Zoe sang to the tree and said, “Grow, Grow, Grow!”, and so let’s hope it does grow!
