You knew I was obsessed with trees, right?


You might be a tree-lover if…

You can’t keep your eyes on the road, because you’re looking at all the trees you pass.


And you study them, trying to determine if they’ve been pruned or not.

Once you decide whether or not they’ve been pruned, you try to figure out if you like the shape or not.

If you do, or don’t, you then try to figure out if that’s what your own trees will look like in ten or twenty or thirty years.

All while you’re driving.

(I’ve never seen “tree watching” on a list of stuff not to do while driving, but it probably should be added.  It’s right up there with texting, applying make-up, and feeding your kids breakfast.)

If you are a tree-lover,

DON’T drive by Lowe’s or Home Depot or anywhere else trees are sold.  It will give you a strong urge to walk in and buy all the little saplings that need good, loving homes.

Even if you have to buy all the property on your street so you have room to plant your new babies.

"Mom" sums it up quite well! I cook, I clean, I homeschool, and yes, I do still ride a tricycle. I love to read books to my kids, and every once in a while I manage to read a book "all by my big self." I journal about my life, here at patchofheaven; hoping to remember, grow, love more, and entertain my mom and other readers!

  1. Very cute, Ruth! Can’t say I like trees as much as you. 🙂 I love flowers though. Can’t wait to plant some more this spring. 🙂
