The Mowing Surprise

I don't understand what goes on under my feet.

In the fall of 2011, I placed some Buckeyes in the ground, covered them with dirt and straw, and waited for a spring surprise.

The seedlings came up.

But then, in the summer heat and drought, they wilted and died.

So, when mowing an overgrown yard for the first time this spring, I was surprised to find a dozen or so Buckeye seedlings fighting for space among the grass.

I'm not sure how it happened.

I only know they are giving me a second chance.
