Removal of the lightning strike tree

The large pine which was stuck by lightning last Fall has finally been removed. It was dropped in sections and, unfortunately, they also removed the 10-year old camellia which was in front of it!

The huge southern magnolia wasn’t damaged but it does look a little lopsided!

The good news? It’s a blank slate and it’s spring planting season!!!

A day in the garden, leveling the soil, repositioning the brick boarder, and planting a few plants will keep me busy.

Meanwhile, most of the spring blooming plants and trees are just about finished!

An American Elm which I planted 10 years ago is blooming. This is Valley Fordge and is Dutch elm disease resistant!

And Cercis chinensis ‘Don Egolf’

Japanese painted fern

Lilac Lil Kim

  1. Your garden is looking good! Spring is always so exciting to see everything come back.


  2. I hope some of your warmth will come this way soon. We had wind chills of 7 below zero here today.
