A little over two years ago, we brought home a tiny fir tree a little over two years ago. Along with it came a small hemlock.
They both fit into a small flower pot, but the hemlock didn't make it through the first winter.
This spring I transplanted the fir into a larger pot, just in time for the growth of new spring shoots. Tiny buds developed on branches and the growing tip. Slowly, they started to open.
Bundles of needles exploded into brilliant green pom-poms.
From here, they will extend up and out into new branches and added height. I like having a spot of green and a hint of the forest on our front deck.
How is spring progressing where you are? -- Margy
