Restoration Site 1 - One Week after Planting

Colorful - YES.  Each flag represents a seedling planted
just one week ago.
I was lucky enough to be able to take the opportunity to check out our recent planting at the Evergreen Lane Entrance (click here to read about Saturday's planting) today between the storms.  The hillside is now a colorful array of flags across the hillside.  Last Saturday, just as we were climbing the stairs for the last time, after having successfully planted over 200 seedlings in the ground, it began to rain.  It's been raining off and on (mostly on) all week.

I'm pleased to note that the seedlings and flags appear to be enjoying their new place on the hillside!
Looking through last year's planting to this year's seedlings
to Fireplace Plaza below.  We look forward to watching
the seedlings grow and mature throughout the year.
