I’ve never been one to nurture living things: kids, animals, plants all seem better off when not relying on me to care for them.  I even killed an African violet, which my mother assured me was impossible to do.  (RIP Eko)
the “before” picture
Imagine my surprise to learn Jay & I had become inadvertent parents to a baby tree.

At first I thought it was a weed, but upon further inspection twas a tree indeed.  Thankfully a guy who’s been helping Jay out getting the house ready to sell had a ladder tall enough rigged up a way to clean the gutter out. 

Quite a gem to be proud of, isn’t he?

Linking up with Christie O. for foto Friday!
