Cliff and I went off in search of some shade trees today. We ended up at Colonial Nursery, south of Blue Springs. I figured they'd be a little pricey for us, but surely we could afford a couple of trees. I wanted fast-growing trees with a little size to them.
I'm impressed with the people at Colonial Nursery every time we're there: they are so knowledgeable and helpful.
Turns out we landed right smack in the middle of a 25%-off tree sale! We came home with two Autumn Blaze maples, and a Chanticleer Pear tree, all of them at least ten feet tall.
We also got a start of Pampas grass. I've always been fascinated with the stuff. I realize that in some places it's considered an invasive weed, but I'll take my chances.
All of that for less than $100. I love a bargain.
To make a good day even better, we'd no sooner gotten home than the propane man arrived with a boom truck and moved our tank. So that unsightly thing is no longer ten feet away from my deck and hot tub.
As icing on the cake of a wonderful day, I checked in with my sister and she's feeling pretty darned well. She'll see her doctor tomorrow afternoon, but I expect only good news from him
Praise God from Whom all blessings flow.
