Thank you to Courtney Dobyns, landscape designer in Vermont, for sending weedpatchgazette.com this display of sculptures in Montreal. Three of these models struck home with me: first, I saw the exact big brown incredibly shaggy dog today at the mailboxes store; second, my husband used his chainsaw to carve an Easter Island sculpture out of the red oak that fell down two summers ago; and third, The Man Who Planted Trees is a favorite little book of mine. I found a dusty copy in Alfred Caldwell’s farmhouse in Wisconsin, immediately sat down to hungrily read what Caldwell, a master landscape architect, might have (probably) read, and felt the connection to the importance of those “who plant trees” even more strongly.

PLEASE COMMENT: Did you plant a new tree in your yard this year?
