Trees Leaving Home

Trees Leaving

I spy rows of young trees about to be transplanted.

Gone are the playful days at the nursery.  Now they are out in the world and ready to make something of themselves.  Perhaps they will beautify a roadway, make shade, dampen sound, make oxygen.  I am sure they are unsure and feeling very unsteady.  But soon they will see how wonderful being useful can be!

  1. This reminds me of a farm we visited this summer. Well, not really a farm – well a chicken farm I guess.


    Around the horse pasture, they had trees that look just like the ones you have drawn. They were about 6 or so. They were like that because the owners were not sure where to put them. It was a big decision – being that they had to dig the holes. Washington DC is hot in the summer. You don’t want to go through all that work to change your mind, you know?

    What wonderful art! Thanks for the great memories!
