Trilingual Sign at a Clinic, Tree Top Nursery, and School's Starting

Wednesday, August 25, 2010. I was at the Melrose Clinic yesterday, and finally decided to take a picture of signs they've got in the (new) entrance. Ku soo dhawoow is, so far, the only set of words I know in Somali.

It's nice to know that this country is still a place where folks want to settle.

In the 13 years, two months and some number of days since I launched Brendan's Island: I haven't mentioned Tree Top Nursery. Not once. On the principle of 'better late than never:' Tree Top Nursery and Landscaping has been open in Sauk Centre since 1983. They've changed the look of their place bit since the last time I paid close attention - which is a matter of years now.

I've been to Tree Top a few times, on the comparatively rare occasions when we wanted to start a new tree, and will probably go there again. Not that my household's among the great lawn and garden enthusiasts in town.

They've got a pretty good website (, and did a good job with their About Us page. Here are some photos I took of the place today.

Tree Top Nursery's got greenhouses, and a decent mount of signage, on Highway 71 as it curves toward Sauk Lake. August 25, 2010.

The plantings and greenhouses are a growing area for Tree Top Nursery & Landscaping: the building with the green roof's Centre Sports, and that's another topic. August 25, 2010.

The opening day of school is coming - right after Labor Day, I see - so there's a lot of get-ready-for-school activity in the stores. At least, i assume that's the case. We've home schooled our kids from grade seven through 12 (their choice), and aren't required to wait for the official opening: so my son's already hitting the books. Not too hard, though: we'll get down to business more in September.
