Beautiful blue-eyed "grass" images, Arthur! Thanks for sharing. It's one of my favorite wildflowers when I lived in coastal Maryland, where it popped up all over the place. I had a bunch in a Richard Adams pot (it grew quite happily in a container) that was lost somewhere along the way.

Happily, getting ready for a rather too late first mowing of the front lawn this year, I discovered several little clumps! They'll be out of the ground and into pots soon...

happy spring to all,
Anita

I like the Appalachian Cove Tray Landscape a lot and really like that it is displayed in a wood tray. That is unless it is a superb ceramic pot designed to look like a wood tray and then I am even more impressed.

the tray is fabricated from American Black Locust wood, with excellent natural rot resistance when in contact with ground. IIRC

general question, are tree heights' measured from the bench or the top of the pot?

That ground level view really looks like a full-scale American Buttonwood (Sycamore)

It is actually Chinese Quince...

I am not sure if there is a "rule" for measuring...most folks just indicate which they have measured from... 20" from pot... 20" from table/bench

In this case I've learned that it is 30" from base-of-tree, not including pot.
I knew this was a Chinese Quince and have long seen a similarity to Sycamore (and I don't think you would get good results from an actual potted Sycamore) but they're one of my favorite full-scale trees.

cool image... especially how the striations in the finish on the pot lend themselves to the general movement of the tree...

Expo 2016

Post  GeneMartin on Wed Jun 15, 2016 2:13 am

We all know how subtle you can sometimes be, Art.  You've probably already shown us the tree that will be the basis for this year's Expo "signature tree".  I realize it is a bit early, but have we seen it yet?

Expo?

Post  GeneMartin on Mon Sep 19, 2016 12:40 am

Art can certainly speak for himself, but I suspect he's up to his eyeballs in prepping for the upcoming Expo.
