Morning Meanderings… A Few Things From The Yard
Hi all — I am up North today and the first part of tomorrow… laptop is safely on the kitchen table at home because I have no internet at the cabin so this is a timed post and I am hoping it all worked well and it went live Saturday morning and you are all like “wow… that Sheila, so clever!” LOL….NOT.
Next week I should have cabin pics for you as I am currently with three good friends and we are biking the Gitchigami trail up by the cabin – yay Rhonda, Sheila, and Belinda!!!
This week however, while mowing I took a couple of pics of the fruit trees in my yard…. first the back story…. in 2001 our home was hit by a tornado. We lost a good part of our home, our business, and about 40 trees out of our yard. I am a big time tree lover and the following summer my super great friends of Wal-Mart (Cindy, Heidi, and Sara) all came over, potlucked and each planted two trees for me…. I now have two silver maples, two apple trees and a plum and cherry tree.
Today features one of the apple trees we planted in 2002:
and the plum tree:
I am a huge memory person, LOVE things that have special meaning and surround myself with just that. These trees and their yearly produce reminds me that even in the worst of events…. life does go on, and friends are always there to lend a helping hand. 🙂
I post these pics for the Saturday Snapshot Meme by Alyce at At Home With Books. Pop in and see what everyone else is taking pictures of 🙂
See you tomorrow (Sunday) afternoon. 😀
