How'd that happen??
giggles.. You got a dusting LJ and i got like 2 inches..o_O
Thank you very much, Pat.That is excellent advice and is much appreciated.
LauraJane, just a tip about watering your tree. But maybe you already know this and do this.My husband likes to water trees with the equivalent of about an inch or two of rain, then let them be for a few days and do the same again, during long dry spells like this past summer. Sometimes he uses soaker hoses, letting them run for about a half day, or with a sprinkler with which he has set a flat pan near where he is watering so he can monitor how much he has put on. Watering them, then letting them sit, encourages them to put down long tap roots. Then in the future they are better adapted to some shorter dry spells because they have access to water further down in the soil because of roots which have extended downward.
Love the picture thanks LJ
I have friends up from Dallas and they said the same thing you said, tex. They said that if this snow were down there, it would shut things down. Pumpkin, I am holed up in my house for goodness who knows how long. Thanks, morris, for commenting on my spruce. It's a lovely little one and I would very much like to see it do well. I faithfully watered it during the drought last summer.
Nice one, laura! that is a pretty little spruce!
GET OUT THE SHOVELS!!!!! STOCK UP ON SUPPLIES!!!! YOU'LL BE STRANDED FOR DAYS.
Hey, LJ, if you were in Texas, you really would be snowed in with this much snow!
I know, Ank, I couldn't get my car out of the garage. I was snowed in.
Wow, that's a lot. lol
Funny, PG. Snow is what this winter has NOT been about here in Illinois. Thanks, flynfree. I have been babying this Christmas tree along because during the heat of the summer it started to look a little peaked. I love this little fella.Chickie...I did put lights on it in 2011, but didn't this past Christmas because I didn't want to do anything that could remotely do any damage to it. Gnt...where are you that you got so much snow? That must be really cool. Ha...literally. Nana and tex...Thank you for liking my little Colorado Blue.
Great pic, LJ! I love this one. Thanks.
Sweet little tree! Thanks, Laurajane! gnt, I would love all that snow for a day or two!
Wow, hope you have a snowblower gnt!
talk about snow we received about a foot last night making it about 2 1/2 feet out there now LOL
Do you put little lights on that tree at Christmas?
What a cute Christmas tree, too!
What is with all this snow all of you are having. Is there nothing else better to do with our time then snow?
