We planted four trees yesterday, and have two more that we will plant today. We just finished brunch, and will get out there soon. 55 degrees now, so it will be pleasant for planting.

Yeah, that stinks doesn't it, Chopper.
And I have a lot more they could have gotten into, too. I'm glad they chose the truck where the dog could hear them.

I'd like to do a little planting this Spring, too. Some kind of bushes or something along the one side of my driveway. The opposite side already has huge lilac bushes bordering it. And I have one bush on the other side already, but it's a pain to mow around. I want to do something to enlarge the area I have to mow around and do more of a border thing.

We have five acres and moved here in December of 1996. We counted yesterday, and we have over 20 evergreens on the property. We also have several deciduous trees of various kinds. We are starting a forest.
We moved here, and the tallest vegetation on the property was yucca. It's been a while, but we add to the tree count each year. We also have added shrubs some years. The lilacs are my favorite.

If we had a watch dog it would probably wear a trench coat and flap it open asking, "Wanna buy a watch?"

Yeah, I signed up for the 10K in May, too. Walking starting now!

I wish...I could use it too...but this is for a run (or walk)...I'm hoping to come in, in the middle of the herd this time and not at the back.

I wouldn't worry too much about that. A lot of that depends on factors outside your control. Do the best you can.

I know, I just keep plugging onward. But I do feel sorry for the first aid volunteers that have to herd us in the back...we walk so slow it makes it hard for them to keep their bikes upright. I'm already much faster than I was the first year I walked.

That's all good. You're improving.
