Jens Jensen, a well-respected Landscape Architect known best for his ‘prairie style’ design work suggested that “Trees are much like human beings and enjoy each other's company. Only a few love to be alone.” What a perfect quote to segue into today’s design thought. When I wandered outside briefly in this morning’s frigid temperatures and knee-deep snow, I spotted one of our favorites trees draped in white and of course, all alone.
If you scroll back to 2011 and peruse this past blog post, http://blog.bilowzassociates.com/2011/06/have-sweet-bay-of-day.html you’ll discover why this specimen tree is one we love to plant someplace special and enjoy throughout the year. Get out your garden journals and start keeping your winter notes. It makes the snow melt faster and this garden hibernation much more bearable. In the meantime, keep warm!
