Blue spruce trees love my yard.
These 2 trees were planted in 1989, when we bought the house, and were about 6 feet tall at the time. There were no trees across most of the lawn, just Old Madison and the orchard. The rest was just leftover grasses from when cows roamed the place. To the front right of this picture is a maple tree we dug out of a wooded area and transplanted in 1990 (there are probably 20 of those). The roundish tree behind and to the left of the blue spruce is an elm tree.
This one is on the other side of my lawn. The giant 2-trunked thing directly behind the blue spruce is a poplar tree, also planted in 1990. I love/hate them. They grow quickly and throw shade (which we need), but the roots grow at the surface, which makes mowing difficult. Sharp eyes might also notice that Old Madison is at the right of this picture!
Happy Tuesday, everyone!
