This weekend I went to an auction of plants. This was a first for me. I have been to many auctions but an auction selling nursery stock was a first for me. I only came home with a couple of items. Mainly because they weren't selling things I particularly needed. However I didn't come home empty handed of course.
Below is one of those contorted blue spruces. I am not sure of the name of it because the nursery had removed all the tags from the plants. I have a suspesion that there was more than one nursery involved and they removed their tags to protect their identity. Anyway, I have always admired these contorted spruces. They look like they should be underwater or on another planet. This one landed in a pot at the center of my knot garden for now. I want it as a focal point someplace and can't find decide where that might be. The other purchase I made was a buckeye shrub. It has some pretty blooms. I had the perfect spot for it at the end of the patio. It is a fairly large shrub already. I am pleased that it will stop the eye at this end of the paito.
