It was a beautiful day to shop for flowers and support the city of Tyler.
In addition to our purchases that day, kids were able to plant their OWN seedling tree, courtesy of the city.
The boys planted little Mexican plum trees in what seemed like a VERY BIG bucket for such a small plant.
Our instructions were to leave it in the pot until January 2013, a really, really, really, really, really, really long time.
So we did, watering and feeding as necessary. They grew about two feet each, and started to sprout pretty green leaves.
Yesterday, we planted them in the front yard (yes, I know it's MARCH, I was waiting until, uh, the ground was softer. Or something like that).
And we can't wait to watch them grow for many more years.
