Five New Reasons to be Happy

 
Hi. I'm back.

If I couldn't find a reason to be happy today, you might as well take me out and shoot me. The sky was blue. The sun was shining.

I walked around my little loop trail out back. About a year ago I reported that there were five baby white pines that had come up on their own just to the east of the large clump on top of the hill.

Well, there are ten babies, not five! It's really hard to see them all in any kind of long shot. I've marked where they are. You'll have to take my word for it on some of them, but I counted carefully.

But I love to see "my" forest expanding. White pines grow fast enough that they will likely get tall while I'm still around to see them.

I should move the smallest one. They are much too close together to all survive anyway.
