Got you intriqued yet? No, I am not going to talk about weeping friends! I was at the commissary today when I ran into an old and dear friend who is a fellow resident of Woodlawn. Tina (yes, her name is also Tina) and I go back a few years and we had a good time catching up.
Boy, I tell you the commissary is THE place to run into people you know and want to see! Anyhow, she reminded of the weeping redbud. This summer when Rural King had its big sale (which my friend Judy called to tell (warn) me about) they had this awesome redbud. This is known as Cercis canadensis 'Lavender Twist'. It is a neat little redbud that will only get about six feet tall and wide. She and I both bought this plant. She was smarter though and bought four (two of which she kindly gave to her neighbor). I am really looking forward to the springtime to see how it looks in bloom. Note the zig zagging tree trunk.
Friends and plants just seem to go together. Tina is a good gardener and I have been trying for years to get her to come to my garden club. Garden clubs are all about friends and plants, but Tina is one of those people who doesn't have a lot of time. I do understand. For now I guess we can just catch up as it happens along the way!
