Becky B’s Squares: Trees at Home In Prescott Lakes

Maybe you could start with one tree and increase the number day by day until you get to thirty one trees, or maybe you could focus on just one tree and share a different part of the same tree each day. They don’t even need to be real trees!

Becky B.

In this month’s square’s challenge I will start at home and spiral farther and farther from home to share different tree species in my travels. All of these posts will work for both Becky B’s Squares and Cee’s Flower of the Day, #FOTD .

Cee’s Flower of the Day

#Prescott Walk #12 D Blooming Hills

It’s 5:00 am, and Puppy Girl just woke up and wants to go outside. In my ancient pjs we walk out the back door to the path behind the patio. Pine trees taller than my squares line the path, keep out the hot afternoon sun and give us privacy we’d never expect in a condo. Of course – carry a doggie bag.

When it gets a little later, we might go for a short walk down the street, but if the temperature soars over 100, we might wait until nearly sunset to do our longer walk. Up the hill – I’m breathing much easier now that I have been to the allergist. His advice – stay indoors. No trees there. 🙂

Allergic to Trees? Some Advice

stay inside and spray 
3, 4, five times a day. 
then inhale deeply

Or… Keep on Walking

We turned around and headed back into the setting sun. What fun! The breeze gently blew leaves. People smiled into the beautiful temperature.

  1. It occurred to me that I am turning into an old lady – at least for the month of July – as I have 4 doctor’s appointments this month. Two next week. YUCK!! I can think of so many other things I would rather do and rather spend money on!! Ha! But our health is precious and becomes more precarious as we age.

    Had to hop over to learn more about Becky B.’s square project. Wish I had seen this earlier. Could have added my square tree photo to the post I published. We are hard-pressed to find many trees in El Paso. You are fortunate to have such lovely trees around your property. Especially making a natural barrier in your backyard. We have rock walls that give us some privacy but no shade.

    Hope you are able to manage your allergies without locking yourself away in your castle like Rapunzel. I had pretty miserable allergies as a child but thankfully, they are better now that I am a grandma. Going to the doctor for other things these days!!

    • I was just talking about that with another friend. It does take so much time especially since I come to Scottsdale for all my appointments. That’s 3.5 hours just driving. But as you say our health is precious.

      Becky’s project goes for the whole month so you can pop in on it whenever you like. It’s a challenge to do them every day, but I made it the whole way in April. She does one once a quarter.

Hi, I'm Marsha Ingrao, a retired educator and wife of a retired realtor. My all-consuming hobby is blogging and it has changed my life. My friends live all over the world. In November 2020, we sold everything and retired to the mile-high desert of Prescott, AZ. We live less than five miles from the Granite Dells, four lakes, and hundreds of trails with our dog, Kalev, and two cats, Moji and Nutter Butter. Vince's sister came with us and lives close by. Every day is a new adventure.
