If one of our lovely trees must get a strange disease, have it's leaves all turn brown and crispy, and then proceed to die, why, oh why, must it be one of the ones between nosy neighbor and us??
Although I vaguely remember saying that I wasn't going to replace any trees until right before we moved, Ryan couldn't stand the dead tree and stopped at the store and bought a new one. He said he picked the tallest one there, but it is a little petite when you stand it next to our four year old trees. Let's hope it catches up a bit this year and doesn't decide to do like the last guy in that spot and die!
It was a beautiful day on Saturday. Okay beautiful may be too strong of a word. But it didn't rain, it didn't try to blow us away, and the mosquitoes were on vacation. I managed to get all my flowers planted and pumpkin and sunflower seeds in the ground.
Let's hope they look a little more impressive soon.
