Happy Arbor Day

Today is Arbor Day in the United States. Unfortunately, it’s almost five and I don’t have a tree to plant. So, Marissa sent me this photo of the tree in front of our Madrona store to try to make me feel better. It looks cold to me, so I ventured out of the closet to see if it’s as naked today as it looks in the photo.  I am happy to report that it now has buds and flowers and looks quite springy.  I asked Kari, in the retail store and Kim, our web store manager, what kind of tree it is and they didn’t know. The best answer I got was from Allen who said it’s the kind you climb.  Every day is some day in the United States, so if you’re like me and you missed Arbor Day, don’t worry, tomorrow, April 28, is Save the Frogs day and I think if you don’t eat one or run one over, you’ve done your duty.  xo Debra
