Trees I have loved!

This is a sugar Maple tree
The Maple tree I remember
was one in front of Aunt Doreen's house

This is a White Oak Tree
I used to climb the ones in the woods
on Hemlock street in Gary.
They were really tall!

Blue Spruce trees
have the best color!
Aunt Doreen had one in her front yard.
Nancy has one Now!

The Regal Cottonwood
Beautiful in the fall
bear in the winter
Cotton falling in the spring
Refreshing in the summer.

Just like Grams said.
Grandma and Grandpa had one in the back yard.
In East Chicago.

There are sooo many trees that I love. These were in Indiana, but I also grew to love trees in Arizona and then in California too. These I will save for another post on another day.

of all of those that you mentioned from Indiana, the
Blue spruce at Aunt Doreen and Uncle David's house, is the one that stands out in my young mind.

That palo verde tree was messy and THORny! (I have pictures of us cutting, I mean Chain sawing that thing to the ground. and hauling it away.)

from a distance---it's yellow flowers are nice.

I loved the Palo Verde tree. I know the thorns were shocking, but that's what moving to the west was all about. Being tuff.
(It was a lot of work)
