Tomorrow is the first day of a five month sprint. I am excited. Tomorrow is José’s first official day with BrightShade, and he cannot sleep. He called to tell me. We spent a very rainy morning standing in the middle of a yard watching water run into new drains. We followed this nail-biting experience with a trip to Merrifield to buy new spades. In the midst of this rainy-day adventure we did find something beautiful. Just off the truck were four 18′ Armstrong Maples.
The Armstrong Maple is a type of Sugar Maple that is perfect for areas where space is a concern. It has a narrow, upright growth habit and grows only 15′ wide. Lucky for us, this tree is part of a March install, and we were overjoyed to find it. Above you will find José quite happy to be a Merrifield customer for the first time.
