So ... this is Frank a Bloodgood Japanese Maple .. his name is Frank in honour of a Dutch Librarian I worked with in a NATO library while we lived in the Netherlands .. he was a force to be reckoned with .. extreme dignity and a wicked sense of humour .. as was my library manager .. don't step on Carla's shoes ever ! EEEEEEEKKKKKKKKK !!
So .. for $25 and creative imagination stewing away in my hot head ... this will probably be just a temporary home for Frank .. until I think I know of a better site that will accommodate some actual growth .. a youngster has to grow , right ?
Frank has a personality that will blend very well with the garden kids .. he will make friends in no time ! Aside from the many Goldfinches that believe they own the garden and one very evil squirrel I mean to square off with one of these days !
Hey .. I can philosophize ? if I want to ... it is my post, my plants, my IMAGINATION right ?? !!
