On a scale of 1-10 (10 being highest), how much attention do you feel comfortable receiving from others?
Birch trees are my favorite trees for a number of reasons.
I love the white bark that you can use for paper and I love the way the leaves flutter.
When I was in 6th grade all of the students in our school(or was it just the 6th grade?) received a tiny Birch sapling on Arbor Day.
My father laughed as I came home with that weak little sapling...from what he said...they all died when planted.
Oh well. I wanted to try with my little birch. So I planted it in our backyard. And probably tended it with neglect. But that birch grew and grew and grew and grew....and it is still growing.
I have a few pictures of myself and my sisters sitting under that birch tree...only six years after it was planted! Such a fast growing tree!
It is beautiful and it is a survivor.
It is the Arbor Day tree that lived!
I'm off to Sign Language...
