A New Row of Trees
In addition to the commemorative Linden, I planted a golden chain Tree (Laburnun) for Ning, a red leafed plum, and a Korean dogwood. I tried to alternate big tree / little tree / big tree / little tree, but I may have messed that up somewhat. No two are alike.
I measured, moved, measured, moved, measured, moved, while still in containers.
Now it's a row of trees. There are still a couple to add, to complete the row. Beside that, a row of shrubs. There will be shade, bird habitat, and some carbon sequestration. Also fragrance and something interesting and peaceful to look at. If they grow and thrive.
