A Birthday Tree

Originally uploaded by hmsohly
Our little boy turned four this month and he had one strong desire--to have a birthday tree. Off we went to Skye Nursery to find something that would fit the bill. He decided upon a Lemon Cypress. The staff at Skye was very kind and patient with him as they showed him different options. The tree will winter in our home and summer on the deck. It can grow to 9 feet and needs re-potting every two years. We decorated it with simple paper ornaments adorned with photos of his previous birthdays and their corresponding numbers. I'll show you how to make these with photos of the baby girl, soon. A birthday tree--just lovely.
