This is the dogwood tree in our front yard. It's somewhere between 8 and 10 feet tall and has probably been there 10 years or so. The ground there is pretty much like concrete, from being compacted by logging machinery back in the 70's. Still, I've put a little lime and fertilizer around it in years past, and put some night water around it after it dropped it's leaves last fall. I think this is the fullest it's ever been. My wife is very pleased with it and I thought a few of my readers might enjoy seeing it.

Incidentally, if you think night water has no value, please note the row of dark green grass in the following photo. The ground is hard and poor there. but I put a gallon of night water about every two feet, in a row about 40 feet long. You can't judge the length from the angle of the photo, but you can see the effect.
