Dressed in Red

Although the day started out at a measly 6°, the bright sunshine is now making muddy puddles and mini-rivers out of the snow. We spent some time tending to trees today: pruning juvenile apple trees in the orchard, trimming odd branches from some bigger landscape trees, taking some cuttings from a golden willow, and wrapping the three young aspens that were vandalized by two pesky young mule deer neighbors.

I don’t know if our very unscientific tree bandages—made from old socks, Vetrap, and duct tape—will provide adequate protection from insects, disease, and desiccation, but they make us feel better!

“He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds.” –PSALM 147:3
