15 trees is awesome, Clare! Beats 15 roses all to hell!

Clare Carver said...

thanks L : ) roses sure are nice though... mine are still in thier pots till I decide where they can live dear safe! I'll take photos when I get them in for you... BTW I couldn't see that video : ( it was really big ... sadly I'm only on a phone line ... so I downloaded 1x and was corrupted and didn't have the "band width" to try again...

L said...

When you visit, I'll run the video for you, no problem, and I won't send big files anymore. And, I owe you a rose when you decide where you want it (Voodoo by the front porch). xoxo

Thanks L. I can't wait to see it I'm SOOO impressed you have kept those girls laying all through the winter... you must be keeping them VERY happy!!! re: voodoo...hum can you take bare root plants on an airplane carry on?I would want her to get crushed ... or maybe I could prune her hard dig her up and ship her to my self... we'll have to discuss... are you sure you don't want her...

Clare Carver said...

chou chou... : )the ground was thankfully not frozen.. and the digging was pretty ok... but the soil sifting and the compost addition and prep was a lot more work than anticipated... : ) but oh how beautiful those trees will look in a few springs covered with cherry, apple and pear blossoms...

Well, I have a plan.... so she will stay with me, but when you identify where you want YOUR Voodoo to go, it will magically appear. Yes, I think I am very lucky to still be getting eggs, and I try my best to keep the Girls happy. Did I tell you they had a nest behind the recycling bins? Seven (7!) eggs in their little nest - all different, so they all participated. Yesterday ThingOne spent 15 minutes trying to find a way to get back there again, but no luck. She really wants to convert the shed to the perfect coop. Can't understand what's wrong with me at all. 8-)

Planting trees in Oregon...are you crazy? You're going to have a tree hugger in each one before too long. Who needs that? I'll be sure to bring a bb gun or two next summer when I come up. Nothing is more fun than hitting one of those people in the ass when the cameras aren't rolling.

how 'bout this johnny you can head op the hill and cut down as many fir trees as you like that'll get those tree luggers... we have a good 100 or so that need to go to make room for pasture... : ) you'll need that gun too we got lots of coyotes 'round these part and couple folks say they've seen cougar : ) ... more from the fronter soon.
