I rent a cobbled together hobbit house that sits under a black locust tree. The blooms last only a week or two but it is amazing while it lasts. I love the look of this tall tree completely covered in blooms and the perfume is heady. I found out last weekend at the Forest Garden Convergence about the nitrogen fixing properties of this awesome tree and that the timber is known for it’s rot resisting properties.
I love that new blooms are always coming out so that as I work on my garden my garden works on me, calming me, nourishing me and healing me.
