One more quick thing.

Covington’s Nursery showed up this morning to replace our redbud tree in the back yard. Contrary to my post on April 4, however, we did not get a Texas Redbud. Sam upgraded to a Forest Pansy Redbud (see below), which is truly GORGEOUS. In early spring the Forest Pansy produces bright fuchsia flowers followed by burgundy leaves that eventually turn bronze and green. It’s like planting a whole box of crayons in the middle of your yard. Right now we’re at the stage with burgundy leaves.
Our next yard upgrade will be the new cedar fence but we don’t know yet which day the installers will be here. I hope it’s soon because Sam is getting manicky.

Thanks for stopping by. Bring a friend next time.
