Tree Arbor

Have never understood the concept, "I can't afford a nice garden."

Can't afford an arbor?  You can afford a few trees.  Contact your Extension Service and discover myriad trees available for pennies on the dollar.
Site the trees along the western exposure of your home and save money each warm month on a/c.
Trees raise property value.
Choose native trees as butterfly hosts in addition to bird habitat.
Mary Sarton is wrong, gardens aren't silent.  Who can live without the sound of wind thru leaves?
Trees teach me every fall, trust Providence, let go & be enriched.

If you want a garden that is a moat of grace around your home & life, contact me.

Beautiful arbor, I didn't know about getting inexpensive trees from the extension service, I'll be contacting them soon. Georgia Organics has a tree sale every winter, that's another great place to get inexpensive trees.

Interesting program or place to find such a program...too bad many such offers here are the wrong trees for our climate, soils. Interesting concept to ponder...

Thank you for those lovely thoughts on trees. Many homeowners overlook the assets they bring to a property because they're often not showy enough. And because they can be slow growing. But I've heard it said you plant a tree for future generations.

If the extension service doesn't sell trees, they will know who does, and which ones are the best for your conditions.

In the Montana summer at sundown, the rush of the wind through the leaves sounds like the ocean.

At least it does after a very good bottle of Spanish red wine with a friend):-
