|Our "Cate-and-Jim" maple tree! (They gave out saplings as their wedding favours.)|
I have always loved a tree I would see on a bike route. The owners circled it with pink cosmos and they always look so colourful and friendly around the tree. I have wanted to do this at our own house for awhile now. So tonight we decided to get started on it. Feeling a little bit like we are breaking a by-law of some kind (because the tree is on city property, though it's right in front of our house),we went to work.
|Before. We circled it with string, thinking it would help guide the digging up of the grass.|
|We put down a fabric barrier. We tried putting in a wooden edger, but no luck. We will have to look for stones later.|
|It was nearly dark when we placed in the seeds. It's supposed to rain tomorrow, so that will help to encourage their growth. I can't wait to see if this works!|
