New Cleveland Select Pears and Blue Spruces

Filed in Nature & Outdoors by on September 8, 2008 1 Comment

I feel like I am living a re-run here. I mean, I don’t mind planting the same trees as I did at the other house, it’s just repetitive, that’s all. I really do like watching them grow.

Yesterday, we went up to Lowe’s to return a bum flashlight I had bought the day before. I didn’t even notice the package was open when I bought it. It was obviously a return that was put back on the shelf. Whatever. I got a new one and it is wicked bright.

While we were there, Laura pointed out some $10 Cleveland Select Flowering Pear trees. I do love it when these trees are priced at, or around, $10. We grabbed five of them and put them on the cart. I also picked up eight Blue Spruce trees to plant in various places around the property.

I decided to plant the pears up near the road in a row. I think they will look really good up there when they get larger, especially in the Spring, when they flower.

These are a few of the Blue Spruce trees we got. I planted the other five up on the hillside. I mowed that sucker again yesterday and didn’t like it. If I could fill the whole thing up with pines, I would be happy. I am going to plant these three in the back somewhere.

I am fighting myself not to get in the car to go back up and get more of these trees right now.

    So are you going to use one of your blue spruce trees as your Christmas tree like we used to do?
