March 22nd was our 4th snow storm of the month, all told we had 15" of snow. Previously even a dusting of snow in March was a rare event! The photo above is the Acer palmatum 'Corallinum' that we planted 4 days earlier.

Thanks to the generosity of Anthony at Kinen's Big & Phat Special Plants one of the Embothrium coccineum liners that we shipped them about 8 years ago was returned to us today to help us ensure a regular supply of seedlings!
The tree in this photo is a first generation seedling fron the old Embothrium growing at the Univeristy on Washington Arboretum in Seattle. Though I haven't seen this myself friends have told me that when in flower the tree at the Arboretum can be seen from the air by passengers leaving or arriving at Seatac Airport!
