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.
