Life is Tough

Life is Tough

Poor tree!  You grow for years on the side of the mountain and just mind your own business.  Then one day along comes the insects.  The tunnel under your skin and eat away.  Nothing you can do.  Then one day along comes an elk.  Beautiful animal!  Majestic animal!  Itchy animal!  Just walks up and scrapes off you bark!  At least it got rid of the insects…

Little Winter Tree

Little Tree in Winter

We were given a little tree this year.  A young friend had raised the tree from just a tiny little shoot and it was growing too big for a pot.  She gave it to us and we planted it in our back yard.  We put some Christmas lights on it this year and have left the lights burning since.  I took this picture on an -8 F night and the little tree brought some light and love into our back yard.
