some of you may remember the orange tree leaves i posted a couple weeks ag0–the curled up dried ones from the tree that didn’t get watered while we were in france. well, i pruned the tree back to a stump. a single stalk. i expected to have to throw it away in spring. well, to my pleasant surprise it is not only budding but thriving. here is some of the new growth. i love the rumpled texture of these newly unfurled leaves.
i thought you all might need a break from snow covered branches and twigs. february has to be the trickiest month for finding inspiration in minnesota.
