A Very Small Tree

The only part of my garden that gets weeded regularly are the edges by the front walk. As I go in and out of the house I notice weeds, pull them, and usually leave them on the sidewalk as I run off to my appointment. I was once a devoted gardener, now I am a distracted gardener. On my way in tonight I spotted this oak seedling and gave it a tug – it came up with half an acorn still attached. I thought I’d share it with you.
