Rhus typhina 'Bailtiger'
Cutleaf Staghorn Sumac "Snake Eyes"
I used this as an accent with those pitiful barberries, (wait till next year), and the rosy-pink stems match the barbs exactly!! I love it when that happens!

The image “” cannot be displayed, because it contains errors. Tomorrow is a sad day. School starts back. I have always hated this day. Nick has always loved it and Cass has always hated it...I hate it. I like the kids home. I don't know what I will do when Nick goes to college. I can't imagine him not calling me for everything....

    When I go to college, I'll call every day!!! But I can't afford to buy 600 calling cards!!!!!


  2. Wow! I love that Cutleaf Staghorn Sumac. I must find some of that for my front border. It's such a wonderful contrast to the dark greens.

    Gosh, I was always happy when school started--both when I was a student and when I was a Mom with a school-aged son. You will have to plan some project for tomorrow so you don't think about it -- too bad your painting is finished.

  3. Zoey-I got lots of painting to do!! All that trim has yet to be painted!!
    I believe I will start that Wed.
