Does anyone remember Baby Groot?
He’s a year old now. A whole year. I can hardly believe it. They grow up so fast.
We haven’t had a birthday celebration for him yet, mostly because I am waiting for his new leaves to come out, but in the meantime, something exciting has happened!
We had a baby!
Isn’t she cute?
(I’m pretty sure this one is a she.)
I gathered about six acorns last fall and kept them all snug and damp in the back of my refrigerator. Only two of them ended up sprouting, and this little beauty is the first to make an appearance. Her twin is in an identical pot, and I expect to see him popping up any day now, since he already has a very nice root system growing.
Now I have to find names for them. If you happen to think of any that you particularly like, please drop them in the comments! I’d love a little help.
As you can see from the pictures, it is raining this morning, the flowers are blooming, our woods are flushed with green, and spring is finally here. As you cannot see (thankfully) I am so, so sick. And have been for a while. If you think of it, send comforting thoughts and cold remedies. I would definitely appreciate them!
Do you have any new arrivals around your home, plants or otherwise? Tell me about them!
