And, the new trees that we planted... I like to think that they are very happy at their new home. The birds love these trees (especially since all of the trees next door have been cut down, oops, did I say that?!), and they have new growth! yes, new growth. That translates to me (not a horticulturalist) that they are going to grow, be happy and establish themselves. Probably the only thing worse than planting 8 foot trees in the cold rain is pulling a dead 8 foot trees out of the ground in hot August. Not gonna happen here.
I'm proud of our trees and their new baby growth:
