A Friend for Baby Spruce

Some of you are familiar with Baby Spruce, our potted Dwarf Alberta Spruce tree which we acquired in September 2013. Well, a few weeks ago Tom found a wooden planter that someone had thrown away. As with all gardening items that are still in reasonable shape, they end up with us. So did the planter, of course.

We had it sitting here and wondered what to put into it. We figured why not get another baby tree? We had the idea to get another evergreen because winters are so dreary here. So, today when we went to Home Depot for potting soil we were "just looking" at evergreens and found a tiny arborvitae, thuja occidentalis Smaragd, to be exact. It went home with us, so now Baby Spruce has a new buddy: Welcome Baby Vitae to the Heepy family.

Some of you might wonder why we don't just put trees into the ground. For one, we have very little outdoor space and the trees would get stepped on by people going through our yard. Also, should we decide to move, we can take the trees with us easier.
