For the rest of this week I will be sharing pics from our garden. I am always quick to celebrate a bloom or branch when it is spring or summer, and the garden goes neglected this time of year when it is dormant. So I snapped some photos to share. This is our walking stick tree, one of the first permanent plants we installed about four years ago when we first started landscaping the backyard. It will be covered in waxy leaves in a few months, hiding all those twisty branches that give it its name and character.
