WHAT’S GOING ON IN THE FOREST

It’s just beautiful out there. Between the serviceberry, apple, & pear trees flowering, there is no shortage of color & fragrance. I was at a member’s property grafting some apple trees the other day & became acquainted with a new favorite–American plum. The foliage of this tree is awesome. Equally important are its thorns which keep the deer away. I recommend planting this near the house.

 

May the forest be with you,
