Climbing Trees: Mosaic Monday

The weather is finally turning in Portland (at least it seemed to be yesterday). For the Ishidas it meant a weekend full of veggie garden prepping and playing outside. It also meant a visit to the plant nursery and the opportunity to dream about the big tree that will one day grace our yard. I’m hoping for a eucalyptus, but I think we’ll be more likely to find (and afford) something a little more local. Whichever tree we end up with, I just hope it grows quickly so that Thomas can enjoy one of his new favorite pass times right in the backyard.

After looking at these pictures I suppose I could settle for a dogwood…
