Tree news

The man that I married likes to move
things around in our yard.  Sometimes it
is because they need to be moved and
sometimes because he just wants to move them.
A couple of days ago he needed to move
a tree from the back to front yard so it could
get more sun.

Originally he had a couple of friends to
help him do this.  But it poured that day. 

So he decides he can do this by himself.  

And I am watching him turn the tree from
side to side and cut and dig and then... 

He uncovers this poor little guy who was
just trying to do whatever he was doing
underground.  I think he is a salamander? 

I decided to look at the flowers  Our tulips
have just started to bloom. 

I just love bulbs of any kind and hope to
plant more this fall. 

Turns out the only help he needed was
a little bit from me to get the tree into
the wheelbarrow for the trip to
the front yard.  Fortunately it was
mostly a downhill ride! 

And he did it!!  Now this paperbark maple
will be where it can get more sun and be
a much happier tree.  If the deer don't eat it.

Oh my gosh, that is a big tree to dig up and move. Kudos to him for persistence!! I feel like such a slacker - we hired people to move fence posts...

Aren't husbands great (and sometimes kinda funny?)? Mine likes to trim things. And also, he enjoys bricks. (I kid--he's actually really sweet and helpful in garden.)

The tulips and grape hyacinths are lovely!
