Things have been very busy around here. We have been out and about every day seeing lots of fun stuff, so much so that I haven't even given a thought to what we will be doing for Earth Day this year. There are always events going on so I will need to spend some time this evening taking a look see.
We did take some time out from sightseeing last weekend to plant the new lemon tree that Dad insisted on buying for me. I am still a little hesitant because I know citrus takes a lot of water, but it is rather special because is was a gift from my Dad. We wont ever be able to move now, at least, not unless we take the lemon tree with us!
We decided to plant it in the veggie garden because it gets a lot of sun, and the tree will one day provide welcome shade for the veggies I hope.
Dad persuaded me that my lovely, and huge Globemallow needed to be moved to accommodate the little tree. I felt really sad so we attempted to transplant in another area of the yard. I am not sure how successful it will be because the roots were incredibly deep, and I am sure they got somewhat damaged in the moving process, but I am keeping my fingers crossed for its ultimate survival.
The little tree appears to be doing well and already has some new growth which is great.
Here are a few pictures of our trip to Kitt Peak National Observatory on Monday. It was a great day with perfect weather and we learned a lot.
Anyway, must fly. Off to Flagstaff tomorrow for a couple of days.
We will all need a long rest next week!
