Here I decided to make the pump house blend in the the garden theme of living in the woods. The Japanese maple tree I bought for 25 cents because the trunk was broken off. But with vitamines and care plus 4 years later here is my expensive tree…LOL

Wow.
Sure is a fancy pumphouse, looks very nice, especially compared to the concrete-block huts you usually see around here.

That maple is gorgeous, and worth every penny you paid ( a couple hundred times over).

Nice pump house indeed. I love it when a bargain becomes a wonderous specimen. Most ( but not all ) of my garden was obtained that way. Well done.

Oh my gosh!!! 25 cents! I won a gift certificate at a local nursery about 8 yrs ago and I used part of it for a japanses maple, it was $129.00 !!!!! That’s the bargain of the century there! lol
