Unusual tree we have on our new property


We are told this is a Tamarac tree. It looks a bit like an evergreen tree close up but it looses its leaves in winter. Today it was humming with bees, the flowers are tiny but it is very pretty.


It is very hot today so we have been enjoying our deck but this afternoon it was  49C (121F) in the sun so we took an afternoon siesta indoors.

Oh my but that is hot! Our place stays nice and cool -- the place is well insulated!

Love the tree.

Oh my 121F is way too hot for me. It seems strange that you are so much further north from us but you have that hot weather. Your place looks so nice. It looks like you lots of space outside. That is a nice tree and the pink color is my favorite color.
