This photo was from early July. (Another from my digital hoard.) Theo spontaneously hugged a tree in our yard. I guess the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree. (Not that this is an apple tree. I believe it’s an oak. So I guess the expression “the acorn doesn’t fall far from the tree” would fit better. It’s just not the version that I’m most familiar with.)
This particular tree is not one we had taken down, by the way. I have yet to really see what our yard looks like, as we returned home after dark.

a lyric from the musical Children of Eden…
“but you cannot close the acorn once the oak begins to grow…”
Please post a picture of how it looks now with the trees removed! I hope it’s not too forlorn, and that you all aren’t traumatized by the change.
Meanwhile, this picture is really precious.
oh i love this one. so sweet.
