(Pictures linked below... delayed from posted directly here until I settle the dispute between Blogger and Flickr!)
Today was the Earthcorps training for Trees For Neighborhoods on Jefferson Park. As far as I could tell, the driving range was not open, but the clear skies and great views were a good counter to the brisk temperatures.
Peeking at downtown Seattle.
The TFN program distributed trees to the neighborhood, and since we had bare planter strips on S Forest St, why not add some foliage? plus, with hot apple cider, mini donuts, and good weather for the planting training session, to whom am I to complain?
Attached are some pictures, at various time points, from the root-ball softening to the finished planted sight.
Tools and compost.
Still in the cans.
Root-ball softening & hole digging.
New homes in the planting strip.
A closer look.
Random photo of fire-red sunset (sigh... more impressive seen in-person)
