Things [ Hand Made ]


My chance to wonder about hand made things and tell the world about those I make, love and cherish!

Oak trees

The 6 year old loves to grow things.
He is fascinated by how things come from seeds and he often want to plant seed a seed he has found to see what happens.
We do not always have much success.
He has had great success in the past with acorns.
These are his small collection of trees.
there are 8 oak trees, 2 sycamore trees and an apple tree.
He is very proud of his trees as am I.
we have lined them all up so we can see them change.
He plans to be a framer one day which is a great surprise as we are a very (sub)urban family.
He plans to plant his trees on his farm.
I plan to sit under them.

I just planted some oak, sycamore and beech seeds yesterday. I hope I am as lucky as you. How long did it take them to get to this size
