Arbor Day

I thought it appropriate that we end the week with trees. Earth Day started our week, National Parks Week, takes us through the weekend and today is Arbor Day.

There is something peaceful about trees. They can be tall and powerful or small and delicate as in a miniature Japanese Maple. They give us fruit and nuts. They provide shade on a hot day, something that is treasured in AZ. I have been to Muir Woods and seen the big Redwoods, it is in those moments that you truly understand how small I are in this world.
