May Day at the woodland garden this year was a great day. I planted new trees that I had acquired at the annual tree sale as well as two free trees provided by Woodhaven Lakes. The trees are offered each year bare root at a very reasonable price. I purchased 2 Kentucky Coffee Trees, 1 Chinkapin Oak, and 1 Freeman Maple. The trees are small but will establish and grow quickly. The two free trees that I received were a Norway Spruce and a Black Hills Spruce. These trees will be a great addition for the woodland garden and add something for future generations to enjoy.
The Best Time To Plant A Tress Is Twenty Years Ago! The Next Best Time Is Today!
The May Apples were only just poking out of the ground two weeks ago are now emerged and in all their glory and have spread even further this year. I will be planting the new arrivals this coming week as the weather slowed me down a bit.
Along with everything else going on at the woodland garden I have taken some time just to sit and enjoy the 10 years of work and love that has gone into creating this garden. It seems hard to believe that ten years has passed already but as we all know time marches on and so to enjoy the little moments it is a great reward.
A garden is your own expression and creation, make it what you want and like then spend as much time there as you can. The garden it will be a great source of joy and fulfillment!
