Christmas Eve Thoughts

So I planted three Red Maples in my backyard this week.

And I'm thinking to myself:

"I have no idea what I am doing. There is no fuckin way these things survive."

I'm taking bets anyway.

But then as I am thinking about this another thought occurs to me:

Birds shit out seeds that become trees in the middle of an empty field. It can't be that hard.

Bird shits out a seed.
Tree sprouts in an empty field.
My trees should survive.

I think that logic is sound.
