When we moved here, the ONLY tree in the front yard was an old birch tree that was on it's last legs. Nor were there any flowers; so we planted all the trees, including a Silver Maple; all the flowers, and bushes. Since then, another tree sprung up;some Crocus, both of which we didn't plant! There are plenty of Cedars, etc. in our back yard and we've never cut any of those down; but the front was bare, TFL.
