I hope you will open this link and be ASTONISHED at human ingenuity.
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?
