The Abby Tree

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!

    The tree is beautiful. Thank you for sharing the photo.

    I’m following you on twitter-I don’t tweet, just stalk others, because I couldn’t come up with anything interesting to say on a regular basis.

    Beautiful. I’ve always loved those trees. In the spring they are so pretty.

    I have a love/hate relationship with Twitter. I can never think of things to say, but love reading others that do (I highly recommend The Bloggess- she’s hilarious, so’s her book).

    Those are one of my favorite trees/bushes. We have two bushes in our backyard and they look so pretty in the springtime and such a nice contrast the rest of the seasons.
    Another beautiful tribute to your dear Abby
