Oh Christmas Tree

This year our family decided to do something different and buy a live Christmas tree that we could plant after the holiday. We ended up with this cute little redwood.

Yep, a redwood. They say it won't stay little for long and eventually will get quite huge. How huge?

Right around the same time I was picking up the the redwood, I came across this amazing TED video . . .

So beautiful. So awe-inspiring. So not accidental.

I recently came across your blog and have been reading along. I thought I would leave my first comment. I don't know what to say except that I have enjoyed reading. Nice blog. I will keep visiting this blog very often.

I am SO going to climb trees with my kids when they're old enough!

Interesting. So does your property have room for a full-grown redwood? I like your Christmas tree.

So cool! Richard Preston is a fabulous author. He is describing his wonderful book, "The Wild Trees", that I recently read. Highly recommended! I have to confess - I love the redwoods, and the area of northern California in which they grow. I'd love to just get lost in the redwood forest, and soak in their immense beauty. Hope your redwood tree takes.
