yard sightings

Over the weekend, we planted a couple new trees in our yard… Newport Flowering Plum and an Autumn Blaze Maple.  They were $8 each from a local nursery (Amos Rich Nurseries) that sells their bare root trees at this price every April.  They are probably nine feet tall, so I think it was a great deal!  I’m excited to have a flowering tree to photograph (see upper right and middle photos).  The other photos are just some colors and textures I found around the yard.  Spring is here (despite my fall-ish blog header)!

    We planted the plum tree near the fence that looks towards our neighbors in the white house and the maple tree along the short fence on the greenspace. I hope they like it there!
