Growing Growing and Growing

Like my son Ethan, his birthday tree has been growing and growing in the last 8 months or so since we first planted it in December 2007. If you recall, this was part of the Plant a Tree programme by NParks, with each tree planted costing $200 that goes into the Garden City Fund.

We were pleasantly surprised to see the little sapling bearing large and lush leaves that are dark green in colour, a sign of health as it pushes its way through in its green and sunlit world. Naturally, we couldn’t resist taking a few shots of it as it is also a member of our family – the green, silent and woody kind!

Hmmm… maybe it is time for us to plant another tree? Perhaps one for my upcoming birthday?

    Children grow up when you are not looking.
