Spring banner Marilyn! Great!
Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed.

Here's the photo taken on March 27, 2012.



Thank you @carolem for your nice words.

Thank you @Fleur569, @lovemyhouse and @plantmanager for the thumbs.

In May 1999, my parents gave my husband and I the Redbud tree and the Blue Spruce you see in the background from the property they lived on. They've both passed away (Mom 2 years on Feb. 14 and Dad 1 year on March 16), but these two trees are living memories of them for me.

I want to get a current photo of the same shot. The Spruce is now taller than the utility pole and the Redbud is larger.

We have a side entry driveway and I stood at the end of it and was able to get this shot of the photo. We have a small hill going up to the backyard and I was lower than the grass level.

per Marilyn: "In May 1999, my parents gave my husband and I the Redbud tree and the Blue Spruce you see in the background from the property they lived on. They've both passed away (Mom 2 years on Feb. 14 and Dad 1 year on March 16), but these two trees are living memories of them for me."

It is very interesting how having learned a little of the meaning a plant has for someone becomes more beautiful to a stranger, as is your memory of the Redbud. The banner now also has new meaning of beauty to me....your loving memory of your parents.

When a good friend or family member has someone dear to them pass away, if they will allow it (some hate plants Whistling ) I try to give them something to plant in that person's memory, and if need be, I help them plant it. I know I appreciated it when a couple people did that for me when my mom died a couple years ago. Lovey dubby
