Arbor Day!

Today is Arbor Day! 


National Arbor Day is the Tree Planter's holiday, and has been celebrated since 1872. It began in Nebraska, a largely treeless plain back in the 1800's. It is a day to plant and dedicate a tree to help nature and the environment. Millions of trees are planted on this day.

(picture from the internet)
Celebrate it by planting a tree, read a book about a tree or just go outside and look at the trees around you and be thankful for them!

Happy Arbor Day to everyone!

Later -- Remington -- I have always liked trees....
kinda got a leg up on them....(nudge, nudge, wink, wink --
that was a joke....) -- out!

Hi Remington, Again you have given us some excellent information. I am going to my boat today so I won't be planting any trees. I did plant three blueberry bushes recently. I named them Ruby, Frankie, and Penny. Do you suppose those will count? I can make a real point to water the trees around my lake. They seem to like that, Right???
Hey I see that you and your Lady Love have become the Staringtons.

We live on 29 acres of nothing but trees...It's gonna take us some time to water them all...I guess we need to start drinking extra water.

We have trees all around our house where crows, jackdaws and magpies live. They love to torment Elliot who goes mad if they land on our fence.

Happy Arbor Day to you too Remington! Trees are great, except when the squirrels use them to escape from me. :(

PS My mom wanted me to tell you that we are big Minnesota Vikings fan too. She was born in Mankato, MN!

All I know about trees is that is where the evil squirrels hang out.

Hi, Remington! Thanks for visiting us today - it was very nice to meet you!

Charlie's brother Trouper has a leg up on some of our trees. So much so that we had to replace a few... Ahem. Anyway, it must be a "boy dog" thing, hmmm?

Hope to see you again soon!
