A new tree grows in our garden

Members of the Barefoot Gardeners of Fenwick Island, DE., came out to the garden recently to plant a tree that they donated in honor of Arbor Day. The tree is a Halesia monticola, commonly known as mountain silverbell (athough it grows well in the sandy loams of the coastal plain). Left to right in back surrounding me are Karen Dudley and the local publisher Susan Lyons. Seated are Carol McCloud and Chris Clark, a photographer who is one of our volunteers.
