Something to plant... Hmmm... I think we have just the place for it. We have a rather sizable hole in our front yard which we thought was part of the groundhog's tunnel system. It just didn't have the telltale mounds of dirt around it and then we discovered it's just a hole, not a tunnel. We think the roots of an old tree that had been cut down rotted away, leaving a "sinkhole". It's the perfect size for a new tree. We plan to fill it in soon but now that you mention something to plant...
We look forward to seeing you whenever you get this way. Our property is covered in a variety of trees - you'll like it. Until then, enjoy Canada. The trees were still green in early September when we met with Tina and the gang. Head north first for color.
As for the man in Croatia. Wow - he meant what he said. Don't mess with someone's "tree of life"!
