The Little Tree That Could - 4.17

Jeremy and I planted a Japanese Maple seedling in the yard this past weekend. I'm really rooting (freakin' hilarious pun intended) for this little guy. I bought him at a local plant sale for two bucks, a fact which I'm very proud of. We've been wanting a Japanese Maple for awhile now, and this little seedling rooted its way right into my heart (freakin' hilarious pun intended...again). And after a little inspiration from Dweej over at House Unseen, Life Unscripted (check her out...not only does she have an amazing story, but she also has a fabulous sense of humor and great writing style), I decided to record the short but exciting life of J.M.through my blog. Dweej took some pictures of a as yet unidentified plant growing in her new yard, and she plans to post more pictures when the plant blooms, so I thought HEY! Great idea! I'll take a picture of little J.M. daily weekly monthly whenever I feel like it, and post it here for our enjoyment. We can watch him grow and become the tree he is destined to be!

  6. Oh, J.M....you need to sing to him daily and buy him tree treats. Grow J.M., grow!
    By the way, Dweej has been added to my (growing)list of women/bloggers who I'd stalk and force to be my friend if she lived nearby. Just think, we could create some kind of Utopian society!
