Just the back yard!? Nah, I want the front and side yards landscaped in natives too.

Acorns to Oaks

Today I picked up some acorns that were starting to sprout. I planted them around the woodland and hedgerow.

David, you make me wish I had a bigger piece of land instead of our in-town half-acre.

I remember thinking no matter how small my yard, I'd plant natives. Even if it were an enclosed courtyard. Of course, one has to scale down what is planted in a small space. I'm sure your half acre is a magnet for wildlife where few refuges exist.

I'm truly thrilled to have our two acres...and *I wish* we had a bigger piece of land too!

I also wish I could've started when I was younger...I hope I get to see these oaks reach maturity even if I can't see them become majestic old trees.

Thank you for your comments. :)
