Inspiration!

Spring is dragging its feet this year! It can’t seem to arrive and stay. We will just keep cheering it on and sooner or later ~ the winter will have to subside! Along with the spring being inspired to stay, our best intentions will follow. Gardening, hiking, and all the other activities that have been put on hold will spring forth as well.

What are you waiting for? Spring Forth!

Tulip Trees are coming to life!

Tulip Trees in early spring.

Pictured is a Tulip Tree planted about 6 years ago. It is about 10-12 feet high. There are two trees about 25 feet apart. It is important to anticipate the final growth size. Clearly it is in
dicated “plant 20 feet apart” however when you first plant them – them look so small! They can’t possibly mean that far apart! But, like children, they grow quickly and get bigger quicker than we think. These two look like they are doing well, in spite of deer snacking. They bloom really early in the spring – kind of a “wake up call”. Low maintenance is their middle name – works for me! Thanks for looking.
