Happy Earth Day!!!

For Earth Day each year (for 3 years now) we have planted a new tree.
This year when we went to pick out a tree they didn't have any avaliable.
(We always try to shop local to support our community)So instead we bought several different schrubs including this Rose Tree.
It is small right now, but should grow 10 to 15 feet. That is a tall schrub. :)

I can't wait to see the blooms on this one. They are a Double white Blossom.
I still have several other schrubs to plant. :)
Hope that everyone is having a wonderful Earth Day today. :)

Good for you! I totally missed that one, but it sounds like a wonderful tradition. I did get some peas planted in my garden last week . . . does that count for anything - hee hee!
