After the official ribbon cutting, it was enjoyable to take in the trees at a slower pace as the visitors began to arrive.
How about a few maples?
A few pines…
It was fantastic to make many new friends, catch up with old friends, and put some faces with those I only knew by name online. Congratulations in particular to my friend Sergio for taking the best deciduous tree award for his Sharp’s Pygmy Japanese Maple. It was perfection, and exciting to see it win!
