Trees in your yard add so much interest and beauty.  They can be quite an investment so taking care of them is essential.

I have three two trees that I really enjoy watching grow.  Three years ago I planted this Capalta tree from a seedling that a fellow blogger sent me.

It has grown to about 6.5 feet, the leaves are very large and look almost tropical. This is the first season it has flowered.

It will probably grow to 20 feet and hopefully shade our front windows.

Additionally I really enjoy my Japanese Maple that I bought about 5 years ago, it was on the isle of markdowns--she looked pretty sad.  I got her into the ground and she looks wonderful in our back yard. I love the purple color!!

Pretty shots. I like the sky in the second picture. Japanese maple looks very interesting. Cool shape and colour of leaves.

Your trees are so awesome to see with their rich colors and different textures on the leaves.
