Arizona Trees

I love

When we first moved to Arizona I was mesmerized by the tall palm trees!

I would look at them for hours, so different than trees with many branches.

Palo Verde trees are beautiful to me.

Providing refreshing shade in the hot desert.

The yellow spring flowers are beautiful. Yes, it's true the thorns are sharp,

but it is a Desert plant after all.

There was a VERY Tall Eucalyptus tree in Tempe,

it grew over a small irrigation canal.

Some neighbor kids had nailed some boards to the trunk.

If you dared to claim around the trunk and to the top,

then you would be rewarded with a platform to sit on and an inspiring view.

(Now to gather courage, for the climb down)

Trees I have loved!

This is a sugar Maple tree
The Maple tree I remember
was one in front of Aunt Doreen's house

This is a White Oak Tree
I used to climb the ones in the woods
on Hemlock street in Gary.
They were really tall!

Blue Spruce trees
have the best color!
Aunt Doreen had one in her front yard.
Nancy has one Now!

The Regal Cottonwood
Beautiful in the fall
bear in the winter
Cotton falling in the spring
Refreshing in the summer.

Just like Grams said.
Grandma and Grandpa had one in the back yard.
In East Chicago.

There are sooo many trees that I love. These were in Indiana, but I also grew to love trees in Arizona and then in California too. These I will save for another post on another day.

Nothing Better Then Family!

Feeling loved!~
I appreciated very much having my Aunt Joanie and cousin Patti
share their time with me!
My only regret is the time was too short!

...she writes! She wants to eventually be a published writer of Kid's Books. I thought if any of you blog readers out there are interested in books, (and I know some of you are) you may want to drop by her blog and visit. Shannon likes to be in the know regarding up and coming writers, new books and book events.

Yes, she can draw too! This is one drawing she has posted on her blog, along with some others you may want to check out. And.....

She has a contest going on right now for all you bloggers out there. Please take a moment, drop in her blogspot and see what she is up to. You may even decide to be a follower.
