young trees

Most of the little trees in pots are starting to leaf out. I really need to decide what to do with them all! Sadly, the ones that I wanted most (after the lilacs), the dogwoods, don't have any leaves yet. I'm still hoping they are just slower than the others to "wake up" but not sure they'll make it.
I planted the little Lilac behind the long garden section in front of the trees, in a bare patch where compost pile used to stand (one of the best ways to kill grass! put a compost pile over a spot. When you've moved it not only is the grass gone but the soil is enriched there as well from what seeped in).
I hope it thrives and grows into something beautiful.
