Images of spring
I just thought I would post a view pictures for my fellow tree people. Spring is breaking out fast here (early I might add), and there is noting to change it in the forecast. So for those that are more northern, hold on, spring is on the say. If anyone else wants to add to this thread, please do so.
Acer palmatum 'Mikawa yatsubusa'
Golden Raindrops Crabapple
Acer triflorum. This is one of my favorite trees. Love the overlapping effect of the leaves, and the lime green color. This is a current picture. It is much ahead of everything else.
Next set of pictures are from the grounds of Crystal Bridges Museum in Bentonville, Arkansas. This Museum just opened in December on 120 acres (I think that's the number) of woodland. This is a product of Helen Walton, and Wal Mart (Wal Mart was founded in Bentonville by Sam Walton father of Helen). Construction is said to have cost $100 Million, and with the art inside, total current cost is said to be near $1 Billion. Admission is free to the public thanks to Wal Mart Corporation. It takes hours to go through. So if your ever in the area, make the trip, it's well worth it. These pictures were taken Saturday 3/24/2012.
�Appalachian Red� Redbud
Fothergilla 'Mount Airy'
They have "Green" roofs as much as possible.
