This post is for my mother

I’m sorry, this will only interest my mother. You see she bought me a tree when Daisy was born that we planted in May 2007 up at the farm. It’s become a little tradition between Rob and his brother to plant trees when they have kids up at the farm so we can see them grow as the kids well, grow. I love seeing the progress of her tree with each visit – sometimes I manage a shot with her in front of it, sometimes now.

This was Daisy at Easter in 2009. It was a teeny weeny thing (it’s official name is a Tropical Birch) when we planted it and I am amazed to see it grow the way it does.

And this is it now. Taller than all of us shooting up into the sky!

A little like some one else I know…

    It is growing beautifully, just like little Daisy. Awwww. My M&D planted a daisy bush when my brother was born. Still flowers every year. It is a wonderful extension of him.
