Tree Carnage

A storm on June 2nd twisted and snapped two of our trees. A mesquite tree out front.

And a flameleaf sumac in back.

Which meant we got to go the nursery to buy more trees!

I’ll admit I was a little sad. That mesquite was growing in the grass when we ripped it out and so we let it grow. Here it is back in 2012.

We’re replacing it with a Retama. We also decided to add a Fragrant Mimosa to the front yard.

In the back the Flameleaf Sumac had tons of suckers so I just picked one and trimmed it up.

We also lost a rather large apricot tree this year. It bloomed this spring and then… nothing. So I’m replacing that with two huisaches.

Gardening is nothing if not change…
