October 14th is never usually a day I love. It denotes the middle of the month (summer truly is GONE) and I hate that. Fall is definitely here (which I really don’t hate) but it is the end of something I love so much, the warmth, sunshine and great feeling of summer. BUT……..
Yesterday our landscaping project began! We were excited and a little scared at first, hoping we’d made the right decisions on the layout, but as the trees we had picked out the previous day began to go into the ground in the spots specified on the plans, my heart just started to beat faster! OH WOW! We have a beautiful park like YARD!
I sat in our upstairs bedroom with the fireplace on and took the screen out of the window, put my telephoto lens in, and just hung out the window shooting photos of my transforming yard.
Trees arrive!! YIPEE!! And there is yet another load to come!!
The unloading begins
.....and more trees unloaded! WOW...that is a LOT of trees
They lay them all across the edge of the yard....even THAT looks GOOD!
Kathy (landscape designer) and Gary inspecting the trees...yes they are indeed BEAUTIMOUS!!!
First tree to go in....at first.....then it was rejected due to indecent exposure...It was completely NAKED on one side. NAKED.
Second first tree to go in....this one properly covered! Yeah, that's what I'm talkin about! Pear tree. It flowers white in the spring.
Pin Oak, my favorite tree! So ginourmous and beautiful!
Blue spruce....not the airplane
Northern? Sunset Maple??? Think I got that one wrong...we have "both" a northern and a sunset maple, but it's a maple all the same!
My Crabapple! It's lost some of its leaves for this year .....but next year it will have lots of leaves AND crabapples!
Sycamores along the driveway
.....It's beginning to look not so soccerfieldy....it is TOO a word.
All soccer tournaments are now CANCELLED! Sorry
Who's AWESOME yard/park is THAT????????They are soooooooo lucky!!!
