I like these distinctions for your trees. Before we downsized recently we had a large property in the country. I was so enthralled by all the beautiful trees and the variety of them that I named a lot of them. That was weird (perhaps) but fun. Then during a storm that took down Thelma AND Louise, I decided not to name my trees any more. I have to admit Thelma and Louise were aptly named though.

You seem to have a personal relationship with these trees. Have you known them throughout their lives?

Hello Judy and Joan Ellen, Thanks. I can only say I feel
a kinship to trees. They give us oxygen and we give them CO2. We cannot live without oxygen and they cannot live without CO2.

It was after I took the pictures that I saw the two parent trees and seemed like their family behind them. It's that quirky way of thinking that I do.

I hope to see both of you sometime in the spring or summer. Thanks for keeping in touch.

Are these more "poet trees"? I'm sure you have a poem in you about them.
Miss you!
