For Christmas last year I bought three tiny trees for my Beloved.

The plan was that we will have some shade in our yard one day.

There's something very disheartening about buying deciduous trees, though. By the time they were planted out in February the leaves all started screwing themselves up and dying.

Not encouraging.

Surely they are supposed to lose their leaves in autumn?

However, I've continued to water our three sticks over the winter, and last weekend noticed this:

Beautiful focus on the weeds, hey?

How likely is it that Spring doesn't start tomorrow?

...Approximately None!

Yeah, I think baby deciduous trees think of their leaves as optional all year round when they're little and a little unsure of their new surroundings.

Looks like you've given them a stable enough environment for them to get a grip on reality and start growing properly!
