Last Friday the three of us took off early for the holiday weekend and there were a bunch of trees sitting in the driveway.
Its all so exciting.
We chose some beautiful trees. Three white bark river birch have been planted at the back of the property to help screen us from the neighbors. Adjacent but in a more prominent spot, we have a paperbark maple.
In the front, nestled under the Douglas firs, we have three new Kousa dogwoods, two in white and one in pink. They are perfect under the tall confier canopy and what's even nicer is that they are in bloom right now.
We have one last maple, a red-leaf Emperor Japanese maple that we have placed so that it will be perfectly viewable from the kitchen table.
Aren't they all amazing? I am so excited that the plants are starting to go in...the garden is really starting to come together and the vision that was black-and-white pencil on paper has become three dimensional and leafy.
