Sometimes when I look out the window at the garden I still freak out that my long-time friend the 60 ft maple is gone (lightning) taking the shade garden with it. However, I am very excited about the new patio and the new plant additions and excited to watch them grow. But, I sure hope they grow fast!
With all the new plants, it is sure nice to be greeted by some old friends–like 20+ year old lilacs and a couple of 15+ year old crabapple trees.
And, when the weather is just a wee bit better, there are more new plants coming, including an obscene amount of roses! I love spring.
