The firefighters did an amazing job preserving structures and open space.

Less than two weeks after the inferno started, the skies are blue and fall color is in full effect.  The Fireglow Japanese maple to the left is the kind of fiery red that we like.  It is one of our most popular plants.  And for good reason- it's sturdy, easy to train into a small patio tree, and red all year.

Fall color will probably only last a few weeks due to the hot dry conditions.  Take a moment and enjoy while it lasts.

A Bright Spot

Hi Joe,

Following up with you and your family. Thinking about you with this destructive fires happening around us. Several news came out of Kenwood hoping that you and your family are ok.

Our home is still standing for now, but our neighbors to the right and in front of us lost their homes. 20 feet away on Altruria 30 plus homes are burnt to the grounds! Amazingly enough the Maples trees in are still standing!

Take care,

Fire Season

Kenwood has several active fires this week and only emergency personnel are working in the area.

Once Kenwood is safe and we can return to Wildwood, we will take stock of nursery.
