Today I am smiling ear to ear. Apparently the landscaping company that put in all of the trees on the boulevards put in the wrong species of trees. Something about the beautiful flaming maples' roots causing problems with the sidewalks in 5-10 years, or something like that. Whatever the case, they had to replace the maples with another type of tree. The new ones are pretty too, so nothing lost on the curb appeal.
Okay, this is where my smile comes in. They took out the maples along the street, and for a fraction of what you would spend on one tree, they planted two of them in my backyard! Yep, they even staked them for me. I am so excited. TWO, count them, TWO trees! They are even good sized trees, at least 15-20 feet. I can't wait to show Mr. Nomad.
Oh yea, I forgot to mention I had to make a snap decision. I hope he is as excited as I am. Just in case he doesn't share my enthusiasm, does anyone have a dog house for me to crash for a few days?
