My Baby Horsechestnut Tree
Three years ago, I found this horsechestnut seedling growing next to the garage. It was about 4 inches tall and had been planted by a squirrel the previous fall.
I transplanted the seedling to the sunniest corner of the yard. This is now the third spring it has come to leaf in its new spot.
It is now 1 foot tall. It will grow to be 80 feet tall.
I love its human character.
