My dearly beloved wanted different plantings along the street. Arbor Vitae, or, to be exact, Green Giant Arbor Vitae. They are supposed to grow very fast, and not be the deer smorgasbord that the regular American Arbor Vitae are. So he hunted up a landscaper we've used before, and the guy said he had a grower who could still dig the trees out last week, before the ground froze too hard.
So, there they were, unloading trees the first week of December, and getting ready to plant away!
Some fool actually stopped beside the landscaper, and informed him that he can't plant at this time of the year! Really? First off, pal, you don't even live in this neighborhood. Second, it's not your money. Last, I believe the guy who's paid to know what he's doing, especially since these plants come with a warranty.
Jeffrey was complaining bitterly last night, because it was 12 degrees at 7PM; he was moving to Cuba for the weather, and figured the $20 in his pocket would last him a month. I pointed out that come summer, he'll be dead of sun poisining. So, it's a good thing these trees got planted last week!
Happy Tuesday, everyone! Hope your Christmas planning (or preparation) is coming along well!
