A tree for Jack

26 May 2014

I am not sure how the idea came to me, but one day while looking out into our garden and thinking about landscaping and how I would love more trees I thought of the perfect idea.  To plant a tree for Jack, to celebrate his birth and something that will grow with him.

We wanted a tree which would blossom in the spring but not a tree that will grow into something enormous that will overpower the garden but maybe something big enough to provide some shade in the summer.  A few weeks back there were cherry blossoms, apple blossoms and all sorts just popping up all over around our village and then I saw a blossoming magnolia tree.  It was beautiful and thats how we decided.  A beautiful tree for a beautiful babe.

And yes, that is a lonesome blossom beneath the tree.  It fell off when we were planting it so we just gently placed it in the soil!

Here is a beautiful blossoming magnolias in case you have not seen one before.

Thanks to Jean for digging and planting it for us ♥

P.S. You can see our veggie garden here which is currently thriving, I pick rocket and salad leaves from it most evenings to have with our supper.
