I always show the success of the hard garden work and love from my dear wife Karen and I.
Some of you may have noticed a sorry sight in the background of some shots from the backyard of our Syracuse city neighborhood of Eastwood home.
The little blue spruce we transplanted after a winter in a pot on our side porch has not made it, I’m afraid. And quite sure.
You can see how dead it is in the photo above.
Yes, that’s the one that we decorated as our outdoor Christmas tree last December.
Epic fail, I must admit.
You win some, you lose some.
Out came the shovel. It now sits in my yard waste recycling pile, hopefully to be turned to mulch by the city of Syracuse.
Thanks for the happy memories this past winter, little tree.
Here’s the link to my post about putting the spruce into the ground this spring.
Have you had success after leaving an evergreen in a pot for a winter? Any advice for what we did wrong? Should we give up or try again next year with a side porch outdoor Christmas tree?
