Tagging Along...

This past weekend, I had a special helper accompany me on one of my landscape consults....

My son, Kai.

He has never expressed any interest in going with me before - but I think he was bored and his best friend (who lives across the street) wasn't going to be home.

So, Kai offered to come with me and be my 'photographer'. 


As I was talking to my clients, Kai would take photos of certain plants, landscape areas or problems, which I would later include in my report.

He caught me gesturing to this evergreen pear tree, above.

Kai also took some good close-ups as well...

 Salt damage from lack of deep watering.


Manganese deficiency in citrus tree.

Kai did also take a few photos with me in them, but he neglected to press the 'skinny button' on my camera so I elected not to include them in this post.  (Okay, I know that a 'skinny button' does not exist on a camera, but I wish someone would invent one, don't you?)

As our consult progressed to the backyard, Kai was no longer taking pictures.
Instead, he was finding himself in some of the photos I took....

 Meeting my client's new chickens.

Swinging from rings in an old citrus tree.

Kai and I both had an enjoyable time.  The clients were very nice people who had a beautiful landscape.  

I hope that Kai was able to see more clearly what I do for my work, (besides writing blogs and articles). 

But all he said on the way home was, "Can we get some ice-cream?"

"Absolutely."

Sweet experience for both of you. May you have many more such excursions with ice cream afterwards.
