Pine on the Prairie

I planted this tree a few years ago and have been babying it ever since.  It is finally taller than I am, and it seems to be doing fine, despite the fact that it would probably like to be in an area that gets a lot more moisture.

I love the way the snow and wind creates white sculptures on the branches.  It's a wintry image that makes me smile.


  1. Every tree in this High Plains area is precious because it takes so long for them to grow. I wish more people would plant trees and baby them.

  2. Im babying a fir baby tree too. Yours is bigger than mine. Love the snow

  3. Now THAT looks like the Christmas season for sure!
