I am happy to report that we are producing all our own power now with our new solar energy panels. Eliminating shade required the removal of some tall trees (which turned out to be diseased) -- and gave us the opportunity to plant what California nurtures best -- fruit trees.
We purchased several, one of which is a peach tree, already laden with young specimens. I am captivated by the wealth and subtlety of colors in these juniors. As well, the plant is a study in sweet texture and line. Its promise makes me smile.
