Hope Everyone had a wonderful 4th of July week-end.

The 4th started out a bit wet, but turned out to be a good afternoon and evening for the many fireworks displayed around town and the neighborhoods. We welcomed the rain as we have been hauling water to the sponsored Trees/Shrubs planted on the Bluebird Trail.

When we don't get rain for a whole week, my dog Daisy and I have to haul water out onto the Trail in five gallon buckets.

This is why we have only planted 6 of the sponsored Tree/Shrubs thus far, because we have to haul water to them if we don't get rain.

We will plant the remainder of the sponsored Tree's/Shrub's this fall when it is cooler and the Tree's/Shrub's can get established during the fall/winter when we normally get more rain on a regular basis. We still have some sponsorship's available for anyone wishing to sponsor a tree/shrub.

To whomever dropped off the two pairs of Binoculars at the shed, we really appreciate your doing so. We need more Binoculars if anyone has pairs they don't use or want any longer. We have placed a container under the shed by the back gate for you to put the Binoculars on. Thank you!
