Blessing #30 - My Shade Tree


What is an OLD farmhouse in the country without a creek and a BIG shade tree.  It is one of the joys of my life and definitely a blessing.  Over the 32 years I have lived here, it has grown and grown and grown.  When it rains, its lower branches touch the ground as I have shown in pictures I’ve posted in the past on my "Buttons for Baga" blog. That tree is absolutely amazing.  The birds and the bees love it, and Buddy and I love it.  It is the centerpiece of our front yard.


“The trees are GOD’S great alphabet:
  With them He writes in shining green
  Across the world His thoughts serene.”

Oh, happy day....I got to hear from you again. Hi, there. I so wish you lived close by. Know you are so busy. I just finished another block about my “hats” and will post it later on tonight or in the morning. Dont work too hard, and try to save a little quality quiet time for yourself and your art.

Love you,
Genie

I sure like all the same blessings you do! I once wrote an essay about the shade trees in my front yard...a large Ash, an Oak and a Maple. They bring me so much pleasure.
