Continuing with the story of spring in my garden, here is a look into some of the dirty but necessary work. Which reminds me that my trashy garage needs some attention now that I see it in this picture. But that can wait...it's a garage.
Every year at this time I take maples that I have grown from seed or purchased as small start-ups and move them up into larger pots to give their roots more space to grow. It's a bit different than in the post below when I am wanting to keep a tree more compact which in that case I must pull them out every few years and reduce the root mass and then stick them back into the same container. These trees need to grow so they will be ready to be sold and planted in a future garden design project.
So no pretty picture here today but hey, the hard work of transformation isn't always pretty but if one can learn to "see" beyond that which is visible there is much beauty waiting to be found...hidden in all the mess and difficult work.
