Ahh spring is in the air!  Even though it's still officialy winter, we in southern Calif. have it nice in that February here is like spring in the rest of the country.  Having said that, I love to be outside and start the gardening and upgrading/maintaining previous projects.  Being a concrete artist, I like making new projects with concrete and have included two new tree ring segments for this instructable that I have made recently to enclose two new avocado trees. A prior instructable: http://www.instructables.com/id/How-To-Make-Concrete-Tree-Rings/ shows the complete process of making tree rings. Pictures of other art projects are included in the final step.

Step 1: Finished Products Look Like this:

I planted two new avocado trees and one lemon tree.  I had rings in place for other trees that didn't make it, so needed to make new segments for the new trees.
amazing <br>
This is super...your letters are beautifully cut! Please may I know how you did the main picture? ' A' 'R' 'T' ...in that the concrete is embossed rather than it being engraved like the later pictures..how do you do that? do you like keep the outline and fill it in with concrete at the last stage?... please post pictures...thank you

Did you plant a Meyers lemon tree? I sure do miss avocados! Thanks for sharing. <br>sunshiine
Hi sunshiine...not sure of the species, just hope it will give us lemons! <br>
