I think that I shall never see
A poem lovely as a tree.
A tree whose hungry mouth is prest
Against the earth's sweet flowing breast;
A tree that looks at God all day,
And lifts her leafy arms to pray;
A tree that may in Summer wear
A nest of robins in her hair;
Upon whose bosom snow has lain;
Who intimately lives with rain.
Poems are made by fools like me,
But only God can make a tree.
...Alfred Joyce Kilmar
In the News: Arbor Day celebrated in Clarksville, 'Tree City USA' as quoted in their local paper "I have a saying that trees are one of our utilities, and the reason I say that is because they help clean the air, they help control rainwater runoff, they convert carbon dioxide into oxygen," he said. "What we really have when we have a line of trees around the city is a utility that provides good things for the population without having any cost associated with it."
Today, we are celebrating the wonderment of trees and we welcome you in our celebration. If you are just visiting me, I would love for you to have a good "roots" with our hop and start at the beginning of our seedling which is at Lynne ~ http://slasewcraftiness.blogspot.com/. If you have arrived from Kimberly ~ http://scrappingrookie.blogspot.com then don't "bark" up the wrong tree as you are standing in our midst!
My project today is a layout which the resident who lives in this treehouse is very glad to have a tree to put roots down in. Hope you like it.
Thank you for visiting us today as we celebrate the loveliness of our trees. Your next stop along our trail is Tiffany ~ http://angel4ever-thecraftyteacher.blogspot.com/. Thank you for counting our rings and not stumping along the way! Please stop back soon for more great projects.
