A POEM


"What does he plant who plants a tree.
He plants, in sap and leaf and wood,
In love of home and loyalty,
And far-cast thought of civic good
His blessing on the neighborhood."

~Charles Lathrop Pack~

  9. Hi Denise,
    wonderful silhouette of the tree and lovely words, we have planted numerous trees on our land and around, even two Giant Redwoods. Where would we be without these wonderful trees.
    All the best, John

I thank you for taking the time to leave a comment. I enjoy reading them very much and always try to return a visit. As I do monitor comments it may take a while for them to appear, even quite late depending on what is going on and how much time I am able to spend on the computer.

Also, there are times when I delete by mistake, so if something you have written to me is gone, it's usually because my fingers have pushed the wrong button!
