So, what’s with you, Nancy? Can’t you write? There’s so much stuffed into my head right now that I can’t get it out. There are some wonderful events still coming up during this last week of tree planting but there have already been so many this fall that I don’t know where to begin.
OK, let’s start with the last event of the season because I’ve already written about it. This wrap-up of the tree planting season is the dedication of the “VICTORY” tree for Grace Flott. This beautiful, really tall Accolade Elm was planted last Friday, but on Sunday the 13th at 1:30 all the people who wrote tree-grams that were hung in her father’s tree while she was hospitalized in Paris and all the people who contributed to her bike and all the people who wish her family well are invited to the tree ceremony. Grace is going to ride her bike up to the tree. Wow!
Watching Grace and her sister Emma and her parents shovel dirt around that tree brought me so much joy. This young woman is going to have a great life!
