Me, being the photographer than I am, believes this is an awesome photo opportunity.
I'm going to share pics occasionally, so those ppl out there considering buying a royal empress tree knows what to expect. *After* I had bought them, I did some web searches and found almost nothing valuable.
This is how they were packaged when they came. I was really expecting the infamous sticks that people usually get, but instead I got two cute little bean stalks.
There is snow on the ground!! (it's April 2 here in NW MO). *sigh* So I'm going to try to hold off for a week or two before planting, because if anyone can kill one of these trees, it would probably be me!
