This has been a long week since I have been commuting to the office all week to teach a course. So, I decided to re-post something I wrote six years ago.
Today was Arbor Day. Someday I want to write a post about the history and significance of Arbor Day, but this is not that day. I am too tired.
I will say that I have some great memories of visiting Arbor Lodge in Nebraska City which was the home of Julius Sterling Morton who was the originator of Arbor Day in America.
Tonight I will share some pictures of trees or tree related items, which is what Arbor Day is all about.
While looking for tree pictures I ran across this picture that I shared in a post titled Old Nature Guides.
Arbor Day makes me think about big old trees like this one in Rowan Mills Park in Toronto.
I sometimes help out in the orchard like when I helped pick up sticks. See my post: Five, Six, Pick up Sticks
Arbor Day also makes me think of one of my favorite books. Click on the following link, A White Bird Flying, to find out why I think of this book on Arbor Day.
I also saw some trees that were waiting to be planted when I drove by a park on the way home.
Have you ever planted a tree on Arbor Day?
