Yesterday, Dan came by yesterday to drop off a tree from his backyard. Our backyard has 2 major issues; it gets too much sun, and there are a few eyesores surrounding it. So, 2 trees in the backyard should be perfect.
I figured he would drop off the tree, we would leave it in the pot for a while, then eventually plant it. A few moments after Dan arrived, "You got a shovel?"
Once we had positioned the first tree, Dan said, "we should go buy another tree right now. Come on. Wanna get crazy with Crazy Dan?"
So, I got this really sweet tipu tree for $24. Then, we planted them both.
I think they looks really nice, plus we, you know, planted trees
. Very hippie. Thanks, Dan!
Per Dan, here are the details on the trees:
