Today my mom and I went to my late grandpa’s house to steal trees

Well, to take cuttings from his two dogwood trees in the hopes of getting baby dogwood trees.

He had a white one and a pink one, so we took cuttings from both trees.  I know it’s not the best time of year to do this – it really should be done when the tree is done blooming – but we’ve put my grandpa’s house on the market and we don’t know how long it’s still going to be ours.  So we went today and got what we wanted.

I took three pink cuttings and three white cuttings.  Right now, they’re sitting on the workbench in the garage, but tomorrow I’ll find a better spot to keep them while they do their thing.  Hopefully everything will work out, and take root, and my parents and my sister and I will all have a dogwood or two from grandpa.

 

I’m also experimenting with a pink cutting in water, in my window.  Just to see what happens.  Maybe it’ll grow!
