Brigitte gets a tree
So about a month ago Gabe decided our front yard was in dire need of a beautiful tree to change colors for us this fall. He went out and bought it under the premise that "brigitte needed it'. Whatever. All I know is now we have a tree that will hopefully one day shield my bedroom from the sweltering sun! Its pretty scrawny now, but someday...gabe assures me it will be 40-50 feet tall, and 30-40 feet wide. He explained that Brigitte needed it to swing from its branches as a child, to sneak out of the house when she is a teenager. And that she will one day carve the name of her first love in the trunk.
And then he insisted we photograph her in front of it. As you can see, she was less than impressed with her tree...
