If you plant a maple tree in the Okanagan Valley, pretty soon the place starts to look like Canada.
And if you plant a bunch of other colourful things, it looks like a landscape painting of Canada, with brightly-coloured acrylic paint from the 1980s.
A look like this costs a lot, and will be cared for by a professional landscaping team. You just have to soak it in.
If you plant Russian Sage, you can get effects like this. Every moment is a photograph.
Except we aren’t living in a photograph. We are living here:
The maples need great care, in order to survive. These cottonwoods thrive on their own.
