We Planted a Tree
Our house sits right up near the sidewalk at the intersection of two busy streets, so hanging out on the porch feels like being on stage. There's Mr. Flossie playing the part of "Man Working on Laptop."
My dream is a big screen of trees providing us some privacy and shade. Here's what we could afford.
It's a Prairiefire Crabapple. Cute, huh? It's currently only seven feet tall—thus its three topmost branches extend a few inches above the porch rail—but supposedly they get to be up to 20'.
Grow, tree, grow!
