biped...."Last Week I told you of all the trees that we got from our nursery. Someone asked if I got them all planted and the answer was kinda sorta. The ladies at the "Master" gardener's class would most likely disagree see'n as some of the bundles of 25 where split into thirds and thus became natural game cover. This little guy below is a "white pine. The pine trees were'nt clumpted together, just the things like the red barked dogwood."
biped...."The next two pictures are of daffodils and tulips that are just peeking their noses above the soil line. We're really lucky because our bulbs naturalize and come back every year. Some people have problems with moles and gophers but we don't. We think it's because 90 percent of Missouri is rock."
biped...."This is Grandma's tree. She paid a little boy .75c for it when it was about six inches tall. She's a sucker for little boys."
biped...."These little guys are my second favorite bulb. Or third favorite. Its a muscari or grape hyacinth. In warm weather climates they bloom in the fall, here they bloom in March or April. They are great naturalizers and they're also great in containers. I got their grandparents over fifteen years ago in a Harry and David gift box."
biped...."Oh and before you ask, did all those trees survive? Not really but it wasn't my fault. The ones we planted in the front yard did great, buuuut the ones we planted in the back yard died. Every single one of them. Perhaps you heard a little ole lady screaming about four years ago.? Yup it was Grandma who discovered that the squirrels pulled up every single one. And ate them. Yeah it was real close to squirrel soup there for a couple weeks."
