Since a big tree in our office side yard blew down one day, and even before that (we knew it was coming), the Landscaping Staff has wanted to add a new tree to grow in its place. We were lucky enough to procure a free magnolia tree from a nearby company, and today our staff planted it.


I especially love this series because of N.Lo’s outfit. N.Lo, I should mention, had A Day today. Cranky all morning, nap from 2PM to 4PM, awakened by coworker, not too happy about it, back to bed after a pants change (soaked), woken up at 5:30PM because it was Dinner TIme, and insisted on going back to bed at 7PM. Literally threw a fit, demanding that early bedtime. Must be growing.


So anyway, the tree.

We begin with some help digging.




Sit in the hole for a moment. Suggest planting a K.Lo Tree; employee declines. Plant actual tree instead.




Help fill in with dirt.



Some suspicious looks from N.Lo.



And… water!

Landscaping Staff proud. Management hoping for fast tree growth, but re: employee growth? Would appreciate a slowdown.

    N.Lo's outfit is to die for.

    And I love how you said he has had A Day. Because Matt had A Day today, himself, and boy do I know what that means.

  1. pen says:

    I need to know what "it" is.

    It's so sad when they have A Day. But so frustrating (for all), too! Sigh.

  1. almost anonymous says:

    At least the company got a new tree in spite of the day.

    yay! sometimes it's eerie how similar our employees are - just mannerisms captured on film I see reflected. love it.
