Went crazy again
Well we did it again. A local nursery had a sale on trees. These were probably left over from the previous year and a real bargain, $25.00 each or 5 for $100.00. The trees were spindly and tall 10 to 15 feet just perfect to help screen out neighbors, so we bought two different kinds of elm. I asked the person who runs the nursery what the trees were - he said they just got the trees unlabeled and he couldn't tell me what they were except some kind of elm. The elm could actually be zelkova but the zelkova's around here have reddish yellow leaves and these are turning a bright yellow without any red and it actually looks like the leaves of Ulmus laevis, Russian elm at least in the photos in my botanical book. The small leaf tree is turning a red orange, again he said it was some kind of elm hopefully Ulmus parvifolia, Chinese elm or Ulmus pumila, Siberian elm. We also bought two "Autumn brilliance" maples and some kind of Cedrus that I can't identify.
We have to stop going to nurseries or I'll die digging holes to plant these trees with large size pots.
Something's screwed up here. Pictures are not being displayed and I didn't post this mushroom picture...wonder what happened? I checked the preview before posting this and all the correct photos were displayed. Strange.
Well, stupid me. I deleted the photos in Photobucket so the pictures essentially did not exist any more. Had to reload them and I guess I'll have to keep them in Photobucket forever if I want them to show up.
