We planted two Cornelian Cherry Dogwood (aka: Golden Glory) Trees in our backyard last fall. Today, on the third full day of spring, I noticed yellow buds beginning to peek out from them, which is exciting! Therefore, I thought one of them would be the perfect tree to host a different kind of blossom, if you will, this spring.
That’s right. I tried to make Ari’s wish come true by creating a granola bar tree.
Once he woke up from his afternoon nap and had a snack, I led him outside to see what was blooming in our backyard.
Good thing I used kitchen twine to hang the bars — rather than doing something Pinterest-worthy — since he was less than impressed with what he saw! Though, perhaps if I had gone all-out he would’ve been wowed. (We’ll never know!)
Alas, he did request to unwrap and eat one of them in the backyard before playing. So, I suppose his wish came true!
