My Garden - Transport

When I see a Japanese Maple (Bloodgood) on as a $20 special
at the local Garden Center,
 I can not resist...
...I can't let such a good deal pass me by,
even though I only have a little Escape.

A kindly lady walked by, stopped and asked in amazement...
"Can you fit all that in?"

Oh, I have done this numerous times...
with leaves waving gently in the passenger seat
 as I drive home.
...And there she is,
safely home!
Mission accomplished.
(Notice the other red maples in my yard : ))

  1. Now that is awesome!!! What a super score!!! Wow! Thanks for the chuckle..I can relate to stuffing plants and trees in my car too! It is a beauty!!!

  2. That's me to a T! What a great buy!

  3. That's something you just can't pass up! Where there's a will there's a way! xx

  4. That's too funny Nell. You have a nice 'collection' of the beautiful red maples. We don't see many of them around these parts. I love them for their nice red colour all year. Enjoy the long weekend.

  5. I have carried all manner of furniture, etc in my car. Your trees are so lovely and even more so in the fall!

  6. What a nice adventure and what a great scenery!
