My most favorite tree (that happens to be outside my living room window) is experiencing a lot this Spring! Crows built a nest in it and successfully reared 4 children! Those crow babies just flew off a few days ago. And yesterday the tree was yarnbombed while I was babysitting my nephew.
OMG- what is the chance that MY TREE would get yarnbombed?! Of all places! AMAZING!!!
