Last summer something hit the leaves and they all spotted.
This year we hit it with some composed cow tea in hope that it would hold its leaves better through the summer.
Just in case that is not possible I thought I needed to pay more attention to the tree as the leaves open.
It is so easy to walk through the day and not notice what is surrounding you.
I try to remind myself to look.
and if I am looking you are too.
What a love those leaves are.
Then there is the redbud tree that was planted several years ago.
Every year it has bloomed more until this year it is going to really show off.
I have to make myself walk out a different door of the studio so I can see this tree.
Just pay attention.
We are working some extra hours trying to finish off the glazing before Monday so we can load the kiln.
We don't like to push this hard any more preferring to be ahead of the deadline if we can.
But, this one is going to be a close one for us.
Who knows, we really might be unloading the pots on Saturday morning.
It could happen.
Meanwhile, the trees and the greens of spring are holding me together.
