We have a new tree in the little triangle garden by the side of our house. It seems to have survived transplanting very well - we haven't noticed any drooping or dying leaves. I guess that autumn is a good time to transplant because the tree will spend more energy on roots and less on leaves. We've made sure to give it lots and lots of water (as evidenced by the unsightly hose in the photo).
Many thanks go to our small group, especially Dave and Janine Ostergren, who donated the tree to us in favor of more lawn space at their house. Our whole small group helped us dig up the tree, drive a few blocks, plant the tree, and then eat desserts.
Now I just need to finish painting all the trim on our storm windows and get a replacement pane of glass for the one that's missing...
