I will have to post-pone my Tree Of The Week series until tomorrow when I have cooled off a lot. Today I was accused of stealing and switching price tags. I got discriminated against today due to my age and it makes me very angry and very upset.
I was at my favorite nursery when a woman I had become good friends with came up to me. She told me that I should be careful and that there are security cameras watching me. One of the people working at the nursery accused me, of all people, of switching price tags. This is the biggest lie seeing as I'm the farthest person from doing that.
I don't understand why a 16 year old, or a teenager in general, can't walk around a place like a nursery and not be accused of doing something bad. I mind my own business. They have no proof that I switch price tags. What just because I pick things up and look at them? Big deal. The General Public is becoming worse and worse. Sueing and sccusing at the smallest belief.
Hey all! Remember the pictures of the pines I posted last blog? They are now up and out of the soil and looking great. They are growing so fast as well! I will write a T.O.T.W. (Tree of the Week) about them later, but don't have too much time as of right now.
And yes I am continuing those blogs, but have too much on my plate as of right now. Friday night/saturday is when the next one of those will be posted.
But here is one of the trees now:
And this one is really weird becasue I planted one seed but got 2 trees? I have no problem with it of course:
Hey again all. Been a while since I blogged. Sorry for that. Anyway, I just thought I would provide an update of everything that has recently come up and whats new and all that good stuff.
I have some Sugar Pine seedlings that are just now starting to rise up and out of the soil and I have included a picture of them. Sugar Pines are dying due to a disease that they get. But they are beautiful trees that can get up to 200 feet tall, and have cones up to 20 inches long. Here they are, barely visible:
I posted my pics of my Joshua Tree seedlings in the Growing from seed section, so that is where those are.
I also am growing Dragon's Blood Tree from seed. It looks like a tall blade of grass, but it's growing very, very fast. Here it is:
And then I have a Stika Spruce here, which is also growing well:
And then the rest of these are just random pictures of other trees I'm growing:
And a Weeping Willow cutting:
Thats it for now! Feel free to leave comments and I will answer them!
My neighbors who have lived next to us as long as I can remember are about to walk away from their house and let it foreclose by the end of September. It's sad but good at the same time because they had the worst son. He was always up to no good and always had the cops going after him. We haven't seen him all summer so he's probably in Juvi. right now.
But anyway, they had this old 1966 Mustang sitting in their garage. Our neighbors decided to sell it to us for only $2,000! It's not in the best shape, but it would be great to fix up. It does not run......yet. It just needed a new starter and it's battery charged, plus gas of course.
My family agrees with me that it would be a great Senior Prom car, and I think I found a girl that agrees with that ;). Anyway, here are some pics of it. It will be nice once it's all fixed up and new paint and everything.
My dad in it:
As you can see, there is nothing on the ceiling. Bit of an issue:
