Trees with white flowers
In Indiana, that was an anomaly. Indiana wants to be forest. The first trees to start forest in Indiana are the dogwoods and redbuds - the understory trees. We didn't have any dogwoods or any redbuds. 150 years of cows on a place will do that, I guess.
Well, we didn't have cows and though we did have sheep, the sheep didn't have the run of every inch of the place, so in time, we started getting dogwoods and redbuds.
I mowed around every single one I could find. They were all allowed to stay.
It was a pain, but it was worth it.
