There has been a little project going on around the homestead lately. My mother and her....well we will call him "the gentleman emailer", have been busy putting in a beautiful orchard in the front yard. It has been adorned with various fruit and nut trees.
We will have plums, cherries, blueberries, apples, pears, walnuts, pecans, and many many more.
They planted a special little tree for our EJ...a Redhaven Peach Tree.
A peach tree for our little homemade Georgia peach.
We love it.
Right now it has beautiful tiny buds that will try mightily for the next several years to bare fruit. By the time Evaleigh is 3 we will be able to pick some of this fruit and make a delicious peach crumble together in her grandmomee's kitchen (one of her Daddy's favorite desserts). I can imagine us in there fumbling around making messes and wearing colorful aprons and the air will be full of giggles.
We will make her picture next to the tree every year.
I can't wait to watch her grow as it certainly will.
can i just say you look gorgeous! especially in that first picture!
what a darling idea! i love it!
oh my goodness this is an amazing idea! my mom planted a peony plant the year my husband and I got married (my favorite flower and what we used in my bouquet) as a tribute to our wedding/marriage. She almost let it die this year (some freak freezing weather), but we'll try to let that slide...
