Getting a jump on things

Made a quick run to Costco for milk and orange juice–sound familiar?–and the glass-faced curio cabinets were nowhere to be seen.

This, meantime, had been at floor height Saturday, but now it’s not just above bumping-into height, it’s tied in place. Well done.

And here on the home front.

I noticed a few leaves knocked off the Page mandarin and wondered which genius squirrel thought that was a tree worth climbing with nowhere to go from there. I went to snap a picture or two of its growth of this past week; there’s been enough that you can see it clear from the window.

Somehow I had never, not in the unpacking, not in the planting, not in the earlier picture taking, not in the watering, not in a week of obsessing happily over my new tree, had I seen what Four Winds Growers had given to me. I had told them this story and I guess they wanted to get me my first taste of my own Page as soon as possible. It had been 37 years. Thank you thank you thank you!

Maybe that squirrel (if it was a squirrel) wasn’t so dumb after all.

(Edited to add in the morning: Richard thought last night that I should pick it to let the little tree put all its energy into growing for now. Some critter agreed with him and made it a moot point. Ah well, all the more for next year.)

Oh neat!! And again… rude! Your critters should have left it for you to tend to.
