  Black Pussy Willow

I finally made it back to the nursery today and got the pussy willow with the black catkins. They're all gone now (the catkins, that is), but I saw some faded ones on the plant when I was there earlier in the week, they're pretty cool.

I marked a spot down by the jungle gym for the plant. While I was scoping out a suitable location, I noticed there was some sort of hardwood tree growing back behind a few young cedars. I've asked T to chop down one of the cedars to give the hardwood a chance. It might be some sort of dogwood, I'm not sure.
