I don't hold much faith in climate change but the seasons do seem to be sliding. June and July were more like Spring than Summer. August was like a monsoon and now September has brought us day after day of 90+ degree weather. So I have been using the garden hose and a root feeder to water the Fir trees I planted in our Enchanted Forest about 8 years ago. I can tell you that those trees have really grown. They were only about 5' tall when I planted them but now they are almost 20' tall. Here's a picture taken 7 years ago and it has just made me feel cool and comfortable looking at it.
And here are my Fir trees today. When we walk in between these trees it is like going into a forest. Oh, by the way, we all went for a walk in the woods today. I had to move the hose from one tree to another and I brought my helpers along.
I think we should have taken along a bowl for some water.
It was hot.
