I took these photos of our tree shortly after we returned from our Spring Break trips.
I didn’t remember it flowering before, but I did remember the helicopter seeds.
I loved playing with those as a girl.
Not sure I am going to enjoy cleaning them up as this tree matures.
It’s kinda a new tree.. our first tree died in the April 2011 tornadoes.
Josh and Joel helped Mike plant this one. 🙂
It’s a Shantung Maple. We bought it expecting red fall foliage. We got yellow.
Zoe, turned her head the second I snapped this picture.
Something caught her eye and she’s ready to run.
She has managed to get through a door and run off
through the neighborhood several times in the last few weeks.
So thankful that she hasn’t been hit by a car.
