1.a. How many ladies does it take to plant a tree? We made it three... and a good team we were. I still picture J. (married 50 years) with the hoodie drawn tight around her face to keep warm. She laughed the entire time we shoveled, hefted, huffed and puffed.
2. An observation: Little children get very excited about planting things.
3. Steve's call from New York was perfectly timed to my respite on the hill. I was sitting on the grass, waiting for Mr. R. and Mr. K. to fill the water tank when he called to check in. His project up there was also going well and we shared our good reports.
