Big Brother, Little Brother

“I’m going to be as big as you, someday!” says little Picea pungens ‘Ruby Teardrops’ to ‘big bro’ across the way.

(Actually not, of course: ‘Ruby Teardrops’ only attains a size of about 3′ x 3′, but a conifer can dream, can’t it?)

    Haha, I should post a picture of my ‘Walnut Glen’ to make your ‘Ruby Teardrop’ feel big! After four years I’d say six inches tall is all he’s at 🙂
    I like how you repeated the color across the path. That corner is really coming together with the exposed trunks of the cedar and all the foliage contrasts, I’m sure it feels good to see the improvements taking shape.

    I do think the plants are talking to one another when no one’s around.
