We chose a Bottle Brush tree because Barb and Sal already had a couple of them here at the campground and they seem to do well with the soil and climate.
Whiskey's gravesite on October 18, 2011, the day we planted the tree.
In March of 2012.
Yesterday, one year later!
I know that Doug and Nancy had taken a photo of Whiskey's tree when it was in full bloom while we were away in January and February. I'll try and remember to get a copy from them.
We spent yesterday getting ready to leave and sorting through everything we need to take with us. Had an email from our employers at Sturgeon Lake Regional Park in Saskatchewan...they said they're looking forward to our arrival, "but don't rush because the lake still has 3 feet of ice on it and the campground is still covered in 3 feet of snow!" Hopefully it will all melt by April 24th or so when we arrive, but I wouldn't bet on it!
Another beautiful day at Hacienda Contreras RV Park.
