THE TREE 2015 #5

This is the fifth in the series – The Tree – Scotch Pine

Basic information on this special tree was written in the February posting: when planted, where planted, why planted, plant information and special design and trim information, etc.

Then two months ago, March, there were a number of photos posted on the bark of this Scotch Pine.  As you saw in those pictures, the bark is interesting with all the texture and pealing that occurs up and down the trunk.

This photo was taken early in the month of May after the last month's posting.
It shows the hosta beginning to take shape - very developed from the last posting.

This was taken two weeks ago.

The posting last month focused on the ongoing Spring and those plants emerging from around the base of this chosen tree.  If you compare this month’s posting to last month’s you can see a definite development in the plants. The many shades of green, the textures, and the forms from the leaves, are all beginning to take shape. All of these variations add to the visual “texture” of this Asian Garden Patio area.  All hopefully complimenting one another - - and THE TREE.

The next three photos are a "walk around" The Tree.

Taken through the sunroom window during a Spring rain storm.
The softness of The Tree and the pale colors are like an oil painting.

NOTE:   All photos use in this posting were taken on the property of Gardens at Waters East
unless otherwise marked.
NOTE:   Since this Blog is meant to be an accurate journal of the gardens;
no photos are “staged”, “arranged”, or ”photo-shopped” in anyway.
What is posted – is what it here.  It is what it is.

One last photo from yesterday.
