Blue Spruce

Yesterday, on Mother's Day, we bought two cute little blue spruce trees, and planted them at the end of the driveway, one on each side.  They're just 2' high right now, but they still look nice, and I think they'll make a nice entrance as they get bigger.  I think we're going to need to protect them from snowmobilers during the winter.

We also bought a little dwarf alberta spruce, which Emma named "silky" and planted it between the privacy fence and the swing bench.  It was a nice day to plant, because it was relatively cool.

The lilacs are blooming and smell wonderful.  So is the Korean spice viburnum.  With just three little flowers, you can smell them from a couple of feet away.
