The last of the bare-rooted trees

Still aching all over from spending a hard weekend in the garden with Farmer Joe planting the last of the bare-rooted trees for the year (we only just snuck them in too - some were already at bud burst). Bare-rooted trees aren't very photogenic, looking an awful lot like sticks poking out of the ground at this time of year. So, until Spring brings us some leaves and blossoms, I'm happy to admire this beautiful Belgian garden, and remind myself that those big trees were little once too.
