A New Tree
We have a fabulous new tree; it's a 'Wolf Eyes' kousa dogwood. I planted it because a neighbor chopped down a little sappling that my birds really loved; the little guys used the old sappling as a landing strip for one of our suet feeders. And my motto has always been, 'They chop one down. I plant one, at least.' And so, after much thought and deliberation, we decided to plant a kousa dogwood with a white flower. And then we found this guy, that fit the bill, and had variegated leaves to boot! Majorly cool.
I now have a large new garden area to landscape (major bummer yeah?). But, I think I will just look at it and ponder the possibilites this year....
