Leaves of a Leopard Tree

I have been consistently delighted with my two Leopard Trees I planted back in April of this year! They have shown me so many different sides and moods, from variations of colour to leaf shapes when open and when closed. Did you know that the leaves actually close when the sun goes down? I have also noticed that they close when it is very windy! I guess this is how they conserve water! Their bark is multi-coloured and when I water them, they have this lovely green tinge!

Every month seems to show a new face…… have a look!

Country living is the best! Being a true spirit of the earth, my garden is all about vegetables and fruit trees and herbs and chickens roaming free. I was keen to really start gardening when we moved to Philadelphia in 2005, but not your typical suburban-type garden – sterile and bug-free! I wanted an edible garden.
