I have been driving myself crazy for a few days (yes .. we all know it has been much longer than that , that I am CRAZY !) .. in any case .. the Serviceberry predicament I put myself in after I had to nix the Japanese Maple idea (this cost almost as much .. whats up with that ?)
In any case .. between the two I narrowed it down to "Autumn Brilliance and Princess Diana" .. well my favorite place only had Autumn Brilliance and Spring Flurry, which I didn't run across before in all that reading ? another whats up with that ? moment ?
So .. anyone who has ever read my blog or looked at my right side bar , knows I am an Autumn Halloweeny girl .. so you might have guessed which one I took home ? The funny thing was .. on the reciept (as I told Tina from Tina in the Garden .. the ID of the tree came up Princess Diana .. now how odd is that .. I can have both trees for the price of one ?? )
It is hard to see the baby in between all the MESS still in the back garden .. but he is there and a bouncing boy in size he is ! .. nice fat buds .. looking healthy and none the less for wear and tear bringing him home : )
I thought it would be nice to dedicate this beautiful little tree to Earth Day .. I can remember it's birthday by way of that too .. but what is best .. is that we keep helping the earth out by giving trees homes where they will be appreciated and loved ... I know .. STOP the gushy stuff !! : )
PS ... Thank you to the garden buddies that weighed in on the subject and gave me their thoughts .. I appreciate that very much indeed ! : ) I have to also say my contractor called me today to explain what was going on and that we are important .. we are priority on the "get this damn deck built before this woman loses her mind !!" listing .. see .. hormonal hissy fits do WORK !!
