When the Arnolds moved to Encinitas, they left family and friends far behind back east. Imagine how much they'll enjoy this loving housewarming gift. It's a gorgeous Patio Lemon Tree [Eureka] that will remind them for years to come that they are loved and missed. Think there might be a lemonade stand in those boys' future!
Autumn always seems to arrive bringing a sense of astonishment. Can we really be near the end of the year already?
Even though Southern California is known to be perpetually sunny, there really are distinct seasons. Just ask any gardener.
And that's the glory of deciduous trees, like this magnificant dawn redwood at Bressingham Gardens north of London. While
our evergreens, like citrus, are often subtle in how they mark the seasons, the deciduous trees give every season all they've got.
A very happy grandma in Pennsylvania is welcoming her sweet baby granddaughter with a PixZee miniature peach Patio Tree.
Isn't the tree tag so cute?
It's getting close to apple season - shorter days, cooler nights and back-to-school ads everywhere you look.
These two cuties have their very own apple tree - a 'Pink Lady' from TWTC. They will remember picking their own apples right off the tree long after they've gone off to make their way in the world. Imagine a birthday gift that creates memories like that!
Getting out early has too many benefits to mention but a spectacular sunrise is one of the best.
You can't help but feel grateful and blessed when a day starts out like this. Sunsets are easy -
day is done, gone the sun... Sunrise takes a bit more effort - try it some day soon.
It's been a few years since Karen lost her sweet dog, Zoe. But every day, "Zoe's Tree" reminds her how much she is loved and Karen smiles at the memories of good times with Zoe by her side.
So sad to have to say goodbye to Bella the dog. But that quickly turned to joy for Charlie, Colby and Olivia and their beautiful moms. May this tree live long and be as strong and pretty as Bella.
The baby whose birth it honors may not fully appreciate the gift - although this little cutie seems very proud of her tree, doesn't she? But the 4-and-a-half year old is pretty excited about those peaches that she will be picking in August, just in time for her birthday! Planting love. Growing memories.
Long before there was Earth Day  there was Arbor Day, a tribute to the royalty of the plant world. Trees sustain life on earth by providing oxygen and moderating temperatures so that we humans can function. How smart of Julius Sterling Morton to promote the idea of a day dedicated to trees and tree-planting on the plains of Nebraska way back then.
