Such a lovely tree. I have never seen a redbud around here. I wonder if they grow here.

Rita, Redbuds grow in the wild here. They are usually seen on the edge of the woods, or tree-line, it's called around here.

I have lots of them in my yard. They have beautiful blooms in the Spring. Then they have gorgeous heart-shaped leaves. The one I really really love, is Forest Pansy Redbud. It is a hybrid I bought several years ago. It has deep maroon leaves. The go through about 5 different colors in the Spring before they settle into the deep color. I don't know how it multiplies because the seed pods it sets doesn't have any seeds in them. It sets thousands of pods, I guess each little cluster of blooms has a pod for each tiny bloom. The blooms grow out of the branches.

The photo of the weeping cherry, the picket fence, and the fog
reminds me of a book cover, but I can't remember the title.
Lovely. I do hope your wisterias do not freeze. I want to see them
in bloom too, especially since they are purple.

Your redbud has a great shape. With my iPad I was able to enlarge your photo so I could see it really well. Gorgeous!

Very pretty redbud. If they grow here Rita they should grow by you. They are very pretty but I have heard that their nectar kills bees.

Seedsower said:Here's my climbing hydrangea that is now hidden behind the dog kennel. I'm still second guessing moving the kennel from 60 feet behind the house to its new location next to our patio.

When we got our new pups in fall I decided the trek back to the kennel in winter and rain was getting more and more unpleasant the older I got. Any ideas on how to camoflauge the kennel somewhat? Tall plants, partial fencing? I want the dogs to still be able to see out so they don't get more destructive than they are. We only kennel them when we are at work.

Forgot to address this. Had a client with the same problem. We used vines. Quick growing ivy for one side so they would have shade. Annual vines on 2 sides. Hops grows fast. I have variegated - interesting leaves, forget the flower, then fun seed heads (the hops). They self seed. Grows more lush at the top, so dogs can see out. Let me know if you need more ideas for annual pretty vines.

Hubby took down a good sized Ash tree, he was trying to figure out how to get the stump/root on his truck to haul to the dump.

I'm always trying to find a way to reuse things for use in the garden.

Picture is kind of hard to get a good glimpse, but meet my new succulent/groundcover/creeper garden, using plants I already had around the yard. Smiling

Let's see if this picture is clearer, if not, my apologies, my camera was acting weird tonight. The stump/root is almost 4 feet across

I recycle clay/ceramic pots that lose their bottoms (mostly my fault for leaving out when it freezes).

You can't read everything on here, but it says "My Favorite Daylily". You'd find a few of these in my gardens, you can never have just one favorite.

I think this daylily will outgrow its "pot" by the end of this year. Have also posted a pic of the daylily.

I love the stump. I've been using dead tree remains(firewood) for years as borders in some of my flower beds. After we had a tornado in 2003(Ithink) we lost 30 something huge trees on our 3 acre property. I've had some huge pieces to do something with. Mostly it was the last or first 10 foot or so of the tree with the roots attached. Most as big or bigger than your pretty. I couldn't move the things, no matter how many ways I tried to my existing beds, so I just made new beds around them. DH nearly freaked, he thinks things should last for 30 years and was quick to point out that they would rot. I pointed out that they would last for several years and i was going to enjoy them while they did. Plus the worms loved the fresh compost!! They lasted nearly 10 years and I still have a few pieces left. Admittly, they are mostly rotten, but the huge ends still mark several of my beds.

I had about 20 big chunks that we used as yard stools for years and I dearly miss them since they did finally rot. Nothing like setting on a big chunk of wood with a glass of ice water when you've been digging bermuda grass out of your beds all day. I love using branches as borders. I also cut most of my stakes out of shrub trimmings every year. I've got several new shrubs growing in the most unusual places since the stakes have a tendecy to root!!

You will get many great years out of that huge root stump. The plants will love their new home.
