  I love this Dallas weather you never know
what to expect!!!!  I bet you we will have
another freeze before or after Easter!!!

  Any way I promised you an update on a collected tree
 that was growing in a crack in a huge rock

     I was able to get it out of the rock


        This was a close up of the trunk


            It had a massive root system

                This is the tree after it was potted
              and wired up ...hope it survives

                Daniel stopped buy to show me his
                 first try at a phoenix graft.. pretty nice!!        

                     Randy acquired some Black Pines but
                      he didn't have any room in his yard so
                      we made a deal.I would plant them
                      along side my Pines and Junipers

                   He would get ten and I would get the rest.
                    It was a lot of hard work to get the rocks
                    out and dig the holes.

                 Then I had to dig a trench for the watering

                       The two rows of Pines were dug with
                        tiles in the bottom of the holes to keep
                         the roots from growing straight down

                      The watering system was installed and
                       up running it took a total of 3days to
                       do everything now we'll wait to see
                        if they survive

                            Landon works evenings but he wanted
                            to go on a dig so we left in the a.m. and
                            he only had time for one tree.

                           By the time we got back and potted
                           his tree up he drove home and had
                           enough time to go work...nice tree!!

 That's all for now      WAX ON.............WAX OFF
