At first I thought it was a load of hooo-haaaa
We got there and the lady was really nice.
She asked all the children who didnt have a tree alrdy if they wanted to adopt one. She also asked any staff, so I did.

So I have an oak tree.


Also I had to post this, it had the most beautiful view. And what was the nicest thing was the quietness. You couldnt hear any traffic, it was lovely.



The reason those faces are edited is I work in a school- those are some children who were in the picture, and for obvious safety reasons I have edited out thier faces.

That was a great field trip. I love nature! Now that you have your own tree, will you be posting pictures often and asking for ideas for a name? I'd call it Okie Doke. :wink: Seriously, that is a lovely view. I so want to visit Scotland and England. When I see the pictures, it just makes me want it more, almost like homesickness.

There is a wonderful program in Israel in which people can have a tree planted in the Holy Land in honor of a loved one. I think that's a wonderful idea. :)

Jessimacat, We have that type of scenery in Pennsylvanie, and I love nature. The green beauty of the British Isles is because of the cooler summers. It's a great place for gardening. It's so majestic and inspiring!

However, I took one trip to southern California, and I LOVED it! I hated to say good bye to the palm trees and flowers blooming in October! It was so beautiful...I guess we're just never satisfied! I would love to visit that area again.

And, although there was not much in the way of green in Arizona and New Mexico, it was magical! Each area has its own special beauty. How I wish I could have visited Yosemite National Park. That is one of the most beautiful places on earth. I guess we should all count our blessings!

Nature is one of the few things I love about Kansas; we have such diversity. Fields of grass, corn, and wheat, rolling hills, the Konza prairie, trees, etc. It's especially beautiful here around Manhattan b/c we in the middle of the Flint Hills. And, although I hate winter, we get to see the beauty in all seasons!

I am jealous of the plants that grow further south, i.e. San Antonio, but that's just because I don't have them here!
