A week or so ago I was at an elementary school to work on first grade spelling; I am a mentor for kids who are in custody of the state. It's a great job, and I love my kids. I happened to have my camera on me, and showed up a few minutes early, so I took a "garden tour" of the grounds. This was my favorite tree. I love trees. I think trees are inspiring, and the word itself is awesome. This tree I think was a crab apple. He looked created for a grade school, I mean look at those branches. Climbing is optimal. Kids were born to climb trees. It has a red ribbon around the trunk because it is "Red Ribbon Week." I don't know if you all have that where you are from, but here it is an anti-drug week! (GO RED RIBBON WEEK!!!) As you can tell, I am for it.
Trees can be one of the most inspiring of natures gifts. My ideal is to move into a house that has been well established, and has great trees, or to build on property that has mature trees. I have decided I lean towards the deciduous. I like change, and progress, color, movement, and chasing autumn leaves in the wind. If I were a tree I know it would be deciduous. I'll have to narrow it down one of these days. What kind of tree are you?
