We’re finally starting to see the results of our labor from last November when we planted 39 trees in the back yard.
Actually, it was 34 trees and 5 shrubbery things, but still, 39 plants put in the ground in a single day.
The other day I was talking to our producer Adam on the phone as I walked through the backyard, looking at the leaves popping out on various trees.
Adam, who is in New York, heard birds over the phone and immediately shouted his frustration.
This, of course, meant I needed to hang up the phone and take pictures to send to Adam and the other The Catholic Channel folks in New York just to taunt them.
Blue skies from the back yard. We’re still contemplating finally putting down sod in a couple weeks after 10 years on no success in getting grass seed to actually grow.
Sam has been on a Moby Dick phase lately. He made a Captain Ahab hat and a spear and was enjoying the warm spring day outside.
