The morning started with the idea of cutting a few branches from the powderpuff tree in the front of the house, the same tree that I was going to hired professional help to cut back. Fast forward two hours later and I did it all myself. My wife was not too happy this tree is her favorite. Powderpuff trees are fast growing, so I expect it will be back full of flowers next summer. I scheduled a bulk pick up with my county, hopefully it will be done within seven days, we get two free pick ups per year.
PS – I will not be doing that again.
I got these orchids from a friend a few years ago; every summer I get many white flowers, this year has been spectacular. If anyone out there knows the name of the orchid let me know.
