Last Friday, Mary Beth biked while I ran a long run in training for the Lima Marathon in May. It was long enough of a run that when we returned, someone from the municipality had planted a tree in our front yard! We've had bushes there before, but tore them out because they make it hard to get in and out of the truck. I applaud their efforts to make the dessert we live in greener, but there are less inconvenient ways.
Four houses down, they are building what looks like a new apartment building. They need a tree. So in the night, I dug up the tree in front of our house and planted it in front of theirs! I think the construction workers felt like Wall-E in the movie of the same name and took a liking to it. This morning I noticed that someone had even watered it!
