We planted this in late May/early June (and by “we”, I mean we paid the nice people at Sheri.dan Nurseries to come and do it for us). It’s a Purple Leaf Sandcherry tree. In spring, it bears beautiful, delicate pinkish flowers.
We got a gift card in February from my three dearest scrappy friends and the idea of doing this for Abby. Right now it’s a skinny little tree in the middle of a bunch of mulch that’s desperately trying to keep the rabid weeds in our jungle of a back yard at bay. But eventually, I plan to turn the entire back corner into Abby’s Garden. We got another gift card from a dear friend on our due date for the same nursery. I don’t have a design yet but we’ll put that card to good use too.
In other news, I’m “on” Twitter now. Peer pressure from my husband… because “Twitter’s where it’s at”. I don’t know what “it” is but I guess I better be like all the cool kids. But fair warning, don’t expect any great thoughts from me. I can’t be witty and clever all the time. Shit, it took me four attempts to type clever instead of cleaver for christsakes!
