The birds love this tree too. Throughout spring & summer they take up residence in the various bird houses I have scattered in the tree branches. In the fall, the red berries are eaten by the birds that are about to migrate south for the winter. And it does give a wonderful shade in the yard.
Here is a picture from last spring of the side garden, the dogwood & the bleeding hearts (which I also love). There are various other flowering plants within this garden, from ground covers, to bulbs, and hosta's. Due to the abundant shade that happens in the summer, I put mostly shade-loving plants in this bed. And to think, this garden started as only a few daffodils planted around a tree!
Unfortunately, right now, all this is buried under 10+ inches of snow (with another 12 or so due on Sunday). It has been a long, cold winter - and I'm looking forward to seeing my garden again.
