My new obsession is planting trees. I planted 2 red delicious and 1 peach tree last week, now I’ve got my sites on Birch trees. When the kids and I went on our nature walk last week we found some Birch trees which I absolutely LoVe! I can’t wait to plant a couple of these on the north side of our house. I want to plant several to make a little forest of them, I especially the love the bark when it peels to reveal the salmon colored under-bark. The kids were amazed with it too. Birch is especially appealing for the winter when everything will be grey, Birch bark will add some color.
