Arbor Day

I had an afternoon meeting at a site near home, so had decided to go home after the meeting since my day started at 7am.  Bonus - the meeting ended 45 minutes early! 

So I stopped at my favorite nursery to look at plants, and found a gorgeous little tree for the bare spot in my yard.  It's a weeping spruce - think "Charlie Brown Christmas tree" but still alive.  It grows slowly, and the branches curve sharply downward about a inch from the trunk.  The lowest limbs drape across the ground. 

I brought it home and spend the rest of Arbor day planting it all by myself - and that root ball was heavy!  

It looks great nestled between the variegated euonymus. 

Maybe tomorrow I can post a photo.
