I take pleasure in using layout and design in everything I do, including the design of the home where we live. Recently, DH came to me and asked which tree I wanted in the front yard, to replace the ones no longer there. I like the idea of having green when you approached the house in winter, so I chose an evergreen.
"What kind of evergreen, a pine or cedar?" was the response.
Well, I hadn't given any thought about that. Just a Christmas tree type of evergreen! So here is the lesson I received:
Pine trees have needles. Some are long, some are short. You can see through the tree because the needles are thin. Now most cedars do not have broad leaves either, but lots of scale-like clusters. I know this isn't the only way to identify these two types of trees but this is now my way of identifying evergreens.
