...thought I was in the conifer forum but I posted in the tree forum.
Here is a link that might be useful: Where am I
Perhaps I'll just redo the thread in the conifer forum where it belongs.
I have been on vacation for a few weeks and have to think when I wake up where I am so I know how you feel. Today I'm in south central Colorado near the town of Pagosa. Last week in Steamboat Springs, Colorado. Before that, Montana, Yellowstone, and Wyoming. Last month I was in eastern British Columbia. My wife and I are headed home now with a quick stop off in northern Idaho to see my brother. I thought retired life was a time I could take it easy and putter around in the garden. My wife has other plans.
I hope the house sitters are having a good time.
If you look close you can see the house sitter's Pit Bull. Meg is deaf and very farsighted. (Crossed with a Dalmation. Who would let that happen?!) She's a good watchdog and a real sweetie once you get to know her. My friend calls her 'Nutmeg'. ;-)
In keeping with the conifer theme, the trunk on the left is a 'Hinoki' that has had the lower branches removed in the interest of more room.
