Washed My Tree Today
Monday, February 17, 2020
My tree needed washing.... that is, my silk ficus tree on the front porch that welcomes guests to my home was getting really REALLY dirty and dusty, and there was even a mud dauber nest on one branch!
And the afternoon was delightful, 80 degrees with a nice breeze....
So I dragged the 6 foot tree out into the yard and attacked it with my garden hose going full blast! I worked it over pretty well trying to agitate every leaf, manually removing most of the dust and stuff, rinsing thoroughly, and then up-ending the whole thing to drain and dry. It won’t be until tomorrow that I can be sure that I got good results, but I DO know that I’ll feel better knowing that I didn’t ignore it for even one more day!
Sometimes, just doing SOMEthing is enough!
