First wildflowers of the year!!! The Dutchman's Breeches are peeking through as is the May Apple and Toad Trillium. My double Bloodroot seems to be dying back a bit. Guess it doesn't like it's new home.
Last week I went over to Elhannon Nursery to meet up with Jim Sutton for the purpose of choosing a 'significant' tree to plant in our front meadow. As we drove down through the nursery I spotted this work of art and he stopped so that I could take a picture. This is a large oak, Red I think, that was hand dug and hand tied by Adreus and his brothers and along with two others, one is visible in the background will be loaded onto a flat bed and driven to the Cape. Apparently the purchaser buys several each year. I think that his pockets must be a bit deeper than ours however as we buy only on each year.
This years tree will be another oak, White Oak to be specific. Unfortunately I neglected to get a picture of it but will be sure to post some pics here when they deliver and plant it.
