Celebrating Small Things: The “Family Tree”

Since today is Arbor Day and we live in Nebraska where Arbor Day began, it seems appropriate to express appreciation for our tree.  We have a tree outside our patio door, a rare luxury in an apartment.

I call it the “family tree” since it seems to attract more than a few Robins.  In case you don’t know we are Robbins.

This tree and the bird feeders on our patio bring much enjoyment to us.  The tree acts as the “waiting room” for the feeders.  Bob recently commented that the money spent on birdseed is a small price to pay for the hours of entertainment we enjoy watching the birds.

In celebration of Arbor Day, I invite you to think about a special tree in your life.

Please feel free to visit the weekly Blog Hob at  Scribblings of an Aspiring Author to see what other people are celebrating.
