The Next Generation

The first year of acorns from the Live Oak we planted in our yard Spring 2008.

I believe that, to plant an oak tree, you have to believe in the future.  It will probably never be large while we live here.  But, someday, it will cast the most wonderful shade over our house.

  1. Yes. I planted a blue spruce in the front of my house with the same thought about the future 🙂

  2. The acorns are beautiful. It is reassuring to think that trees we plant will someday be large. (I’m a book addict too ~ couldn’t do without them!)

  3. That’s cool that you planted a live oak…truly planting for the future:)

    Isn’t there a proverb about how one generation plants a tree, the next one gets the shade?? Good for you, and those are lovely acorns.
