Hot hot hot

So we are heating up to the nineties today and tomorrow. I hope junipers respond well... Time to water heavy!

 My junipers and yew have really been suffering. We've been having a cold spring to make up for our warm winter. I've decided that they were not positioned optimally in the back yard so Matty and I moved them to a corner of my yard where they SHOULD receive better sunlight. It's the one area of my yard that I can't keep grass on without irrigation. I think they should thrive here. I threw 4 baby shimps in the ground to grow. This area must have been a bed at one time because the soil was excellent. I'll lift them in 2 years to do some root work and plunk them back in there.

Here's an awful picture of two amazing people. Randi and Roy at our last meeting. I have a youtube video to follow... promise.

Been a while

Last night I thinned out the shimpaku I made at the Valavanis seminar to make it more suitable to be a literati. It's closer and I think more elegant. Here's a peak.
