As I've mentioned before, a brand new home has been emerging next door to us. Landscaping appears to now be underway and numerous large trees are flying in! Actually a crane is lifting them off trucks and into their positions around the property. Fascinating to watch! I recall all the planting of very small trees, shrubs and flowers that I did by hand on our place after our renovations many years ago, in simpler times it seems.
Looking away from the above odd scene is a view of a magnolia and camellia in full bloom in our backyard. They were here when we moved in and are now very large.
