When I first moved into my home, the trees were bare and I had no idea what they were. What a lovely surprise to find out this one sprouted these gorgeous purple flowers!
Perfect place for this lovely turquoise wind chime (gifted from a friend)
I can view it from the kitchen window when I'm doing the dishes. Something pretty to distract from chores :)
This tree was on my list to dig up and get rid of, but it redeemed itself in the spring. Glad I procrastinated! I have gotten rid of a lot of vegetation (about 20 rose bushes and 3 trees), which makes me feel like I hate plants. I still have about thirty trees* in my backyard, so I haven't gotten rid of everything!
*I'm not sure if twenty of them are considered trees or bushes? They are taller than me and have leaves only at the top. They line the back fence. I will have to post a photo of them someday.
