Tyler's Tree: February

I took this earlier in the month, the weekend of February 8th, which means it was about a month from the last time I took photos of his tree. What I notice (my verb for week before last, I believe) is that Tyler's tree seems to be a bit slower than the other trees we planted. One of the other rain trees had a small green leaf shooting out from its stem. Tyler's tree is almost too thin to cast a shadow! I have high hopes that it will blossom soon, that maybe when March rolls around, there will be something more than a stick to photograph.

I saw this quote today in the comments section of a blog I read:
"Without your wounds, where would your power be? It is your melancholy that makes your low voice tremble into the hearts of men. The very angels, themselves, cannot persuade the wretched and blundering children of this world as can one human being, broken on the wheels of living. In Love's service, only wounded soldiers can serve." -- Thornton Wilder
I like it.


Don't just sit there staring, say something!
