Planting trees and planting memories
April 27, 2009
Saturday was Christmas tree planting day. Everyone in our family, young and old, were invited to help plant the trees and make memories.
A few years ago I had the idea of planting our own Christmas trees in a small field on the north end of our property. The idea was to gather all our family together each Spring to plant fir trees, and then, a number of years down the road, to gather again each year around the Holidays to go out and cut our own Christmas trees (while sipping hot cider, of course).
For three years now, we have planted our ‘someday Christmas trees’ together. Saturday was a nice sunny day for planting, and Sunday we had a soft rain all day. What a blessing!
And look at the hard workers!
