Good Tuesday morning! I wanted to share the new addition to our family – an Ohio Buckeye tree! This tree will replace the oak tree the builder planted in front of our house last summer. Unfortunately, the tree did not survive the winter. The main truck was damaged. We knew it had to be replaced. We visited our local Colorado Nursery to select something different.
Here is the half-dead oak tree
Here is the Buckeye tree coming off the truck
The tree is placed in the hole.
The tree is staked against the hot/cold winds that blow with a fury up and down our street (north-south)
Our new tree! An Ohio Buckeye.
This is the tree we picked from the nursery. It was in full bloom. We had to wait a few weeks for it to be planted. The flowers are a lovely yellow. I wanted a spring blooming tree that was yellow in color to complement the colors of our house.
Thanks for stopping by to take a peek at the new addition!
