Happy Valentine's Day from Baby Spruce

If you are one of Baby Spruce's fans, then you know that he sends out special greetings to his "friends" for every holiday. I used to use a certain social media platform for that, but am no longer active on that site. So, here is your Valentine from everyone's favorite little tree.

If you have no clue what this is about, here is a quick rewind: Baby Spruce is our Dwarf Alberta Spruce tree that we acquired in September 2013. Tom (aka Mr. Heepy) and I joke that he is our "kid." See, he brought a dog into the relationship and I brought a cat. So, Baby Spruce is a tree we both picked out, planted and have nurtured since then.

Why does Baby Spruce reside in a planter instead of the ground in our garden? So we can take him with us, should we have to move. Plus, we have little space and this allows me to use said space for flowers.

Stay warm and safe, everyone!
