Our New Tree

The other trees are making fun of me

And I do mean the big our not the little one. The town has planted another new tree along the street near our house. If you are counting this is tree number 3 planted in the exact same spot. The first tree was hit and run over by a neighborhood teen. PSA: If your cell phone falls to the floor of the car, leave it there until you are in park. The second tree, which I don’t remember documenting, died a slow painful bug induced death. There was a crack in the truck, something moved it and killed the tree from the inside out. Tree number 3 arrived a couple of weeks ago during the hot that was April. Earlier this week the tree guy stopped by to place this watering system around the tree. They were very concerned that the tree set down strong deep roots so it will grow big and tall. My job is to keep this thing full of water over the summer so that the tree will be deeply watered. It has rained just about constantly since the guy installed the watering tube of embarrassment. I love irony.

    Well, maybe third time’s the charm but maybe they should have just skipped having a tree in that spot! Keep us updated. 🙂

    Now knowing the horrible ends that the last two trees endured, I’m definitely rooting for that little guy!
