Happy Friday from me and my alpaca friend from a while ago.
As I have mentioned, I do not sleep well. I was awake during the night for over an hour. As a result, I slept in a little this morning and am getting a late start.
Rain is predicted for later, so I hope to get out for my yard laps in a few minutes.
Over the last few years we have lost a lot of trees in our yard. WHenever we lose one, we do our best to replace it with another tree. ALong our street we lost two maple trees several years ago. Three or four years ago we replaced them with 2 American SYcamores. We got trees that were a good size already. The first year, they looked awful. Very few leaves. The tree farm refunded us half of our money and came and worked on them. They told us if they did not improve by the following year, they would replace them. Last year they looked a little better. We decided to have a tree service come and infuse some vitamins into them. They looked full and lovely last year.
This year right after the leaves began to sprout, we had a killing frost. The trees look bad again. Tree service came and told us all of the sycamores locally look like ours and not to worry. They infused more good stuff into the ground to nourish them.
Our over hundred year old Ginkgo tree is also looking bad. Al of the buds died in the frost. HE said all of the local Ginkgo trees look like that and not to worry. If it does not perk up soon, he will come and give it a boost to wake it up.
If only someone could infuse me with some vitamins or a boost, to get my system to wake up and lose weight!
I am heading out for my yard laps. Have a great day.
