Don't forget to plant...

Christmas trees! Specifically, Noble firs, above. Our friend delivered some seedlings for the hill. And also Douglas fir in the photo below. We planted at least 50 trees on Sunday afternoon. The sound of rain that night was quite a relief (i.e. no thirsty seedlings)!

See the tree in the background above, top left corner? That's our hillside retreat tree. Here it is with its October decorations.
Now that the sheep (see them here) aren't here to eat to them, they might live longer than the last trees/shrubs we planted. A little difficult to tell at this size if we planted them where we think we need trees. We'll see which ones manage to grow taller than the summer grass. I can hardly wait! Much thanks to our favorite tree person!
