Doesn’t that look like a photo from the 70s? The exposure has an old time feel to it. I didn’t do it on purpose. My DSLR camera did it. You know, I’ve had that thing for months now, and I STILL haven’t had time to read the manual and watch the instruction video?? :-p I am terrible with manuals, I admit it. I wish I had the patience to read them! But I’m a little like my dad– I like to jump into things like motor home repairs and just figure things out. But the camera exposure I cannot figure out. Yet. I have to read the manual. Mmhm.
Anyway. Back to the mugo. It’s cute. It’s my only one in the yard. Years ago, I had purchased two mugos (mugoes?) from an online nursery. I planted them near a young maple tree, expecting them to grow to be only about 2-3 feet high. Um, these suckers aren’t mugos! The nursery gave me Scotch pines!!! These babies are (so far) 12 feet tall! I didn’t realize they were full-grow trees until a few years ago, much too late for me to contact the nursery and too late for me to transplant them. ugh. So they sit in the beds, still, squishing the other plants nearby. lol.
Fall is almost over. The days have been very nice, but I expect the temperatures will be dropping soon. We still don’t have our heaters installed downstairs yet!! :-O
