Who Said ?

Someone is sitting in the shade today because someone planted a tree a long time ago.

Warren Buffet----
American business magnate, investor and philanthropist.

You could have said that even I had could have said that!
I don't think anyone planted these trees, they were part of some woods left
when they cleared this land.

Are these on your property? Nice to know that Warren thinks about more than money!

I've been out under our biggest tree for a late lunch---a cucumber sandwich and iced coffee. This one is a three-tree set, I think, for the trunks are all immense, and twine a little bit, kissing each other where they've grown together. Maybe eighty feet tall, and one of the reasons we bought this house.

The whole yard is one immense forest until the time I get in a frenzy with the clippers every couple of years. Don't know who planted a single one of these, except the three maples in the front yard. They were peeking out from under a big old blue above-ground pool one Spring after all the maple-spinners whirled their way down, and I dug out each one carefully with an old teaspoon.

I stuck them all in a hole out front where we'd had a stump removed, and I guess they liked the soil, for they've grown more than twenty-feet-tall already, the three of them entwined just like the big old hackberry out back.

Trees and good old dogs are some of the noblest creatures there are.

You and Mr. The Bennie go out in the shade and have a glass of sweet tea for me.

No, they are across our fence at the back of our house and that is in the county.

Sweet Ice tea sounds good to me.

I am glad that you have the trees to enjoy from a distance, just like we do. We enjoy seeing the birds in the trees.

I enjoy nature more than anything. I always feel closest to God there.
Your property is lovely! We have lots of trees too and I prefer it that way. ~:)

I have planted a lot of trees on my two lots and I really like them. Some people say that I have a park for a yard. I like it that way and I know someday when someone else buys the property that those trees will probably all go.
