Thanks to my mom, we now have two new Little Gem Magnolia trees! And we got them both for less than the one that we saw at Pike Nursery. She and my dad came up yesterday. My dad dug the holes and then my mom showed me how to plant them correctly.
I love that we got something new put in the front yard so fast after taking down the pear tree. And now the hill in the backyard will hopefully feel more balanced with a tree on the left side.
Also, I was able to finish painting the garage before my parents got here. We have been working on getting the cabinet up today, but the battery on the drill died so we will have to wait a little longer to get finished with the organizing. Yea for a productive weekend!
