More plant shopping and grape juice
A good friend gave me grapes and apples. So today I'm making purple grape juice and apple sauce. While the grapes cook down into juice I was on eBay looking at trees. I bought a Magnolia "Heaven Scent" (a vigorous small erect tree, large fragrant flowers, dappled pinkish lavender. A very beautiful new form. It gets 2 meters high and 3 meters wide in 10 years). I always loved Magnolias. I also want a Japanese maple tree. I'm still trying to figure out what tree to get. I want one with a good form that will look good next to the pound. And I don't know what rhododendrons and azaleas to get. But I need my dad to help me with those plants.
