It has all the autumn colours on the one tree! Is this the one that has a burned sugar scent when the leaves fall Amy?

Waddy We started doing this for the grandchildren when we were living in our last house the problem then was that when we moved we had to dig up the first Grandchilds tree to move with us luckily it survived ! Karen I think it smells like oranges ,you know when you peel an orange and you get that full zesty smell , nice :o)

What was your first tree Amy - for Marianne I presume?

You are clever dawn ,yes it was Marianne , it was a Crataegus 'Pauls Scarlet ' it always delights me each May as it blooms its head off just in time for her birthday at the end of May ,I have a Clematis growing up it as well ...

29 Oct, 2015

 

Its a great idea. I had a Pauls Scarlet but it never did anything and it died in the end, weird because ye olde common hawthorn thrives around here. I must get another one and yes, those blooms at the end of May are like nothing else. Clematis idea is good too. Do you have trees for the other two boys?

A wonderful idea Amy, and such a magnificent tree as well...

It would be sad to move then Amy with all those trees planted in memory, you would have to start another project!!

Hope Ryan had a happy birthday. I bet he's as handsome as the tree :)
