And life grows on- Our new tree~~

post #1 of 22
Thread Starter 
I got a delivery a bit ago, a Korean Dogwood tree and I was mistaken as to who it was from- so I pulled my original post.

The tree is in honor of Tazzy and it is from a group here called The Hope Express whose members are trying very hard to stay as anonymous as anyone can in such a tightly-knit community of cat-lovers.

Thank you Hope Expressers for giving to Mike and I such a wonderful tribute for such a shattering loss- May you ALL live long and prosper and keep on doing good in the shadows of this community-

Couldn't have said it better myself.

I still want to see a picture by the way! I don't think I know what a Dogwood tree looks like.

Well we are getting hit with quite a storm right now so a picture is kind of not possible at the moment- but this is from the net and is what these trees look like in full bloom

Oh that is so thoughtful and lovely. I think they bloom with gorgeous pink flowers in the Spring, that photo must be from the Fall. What a very fitting tribute for Tazzie girl. I hope it grows strong and full for many years.

Oh wow! What a lovely tribute for such a special little soul! From the pictures it looks gorgeous! I know my parents always said one of the things they missed from North Carolina was the beautiful Dogwoods.

MA - how wonderful - you'll always have something that reminds you of Tazzy - it will be wonderful to see it standing strong, tall and healthy.

We planted rose bushes where a feral that we were looking after was buried and a pet rabbit - it always brings us comfort and we think of the little souls resting there.

Mary Anne, I'm sure you already know this quote, but I saw it fitting to your situation. Betty Smith wrote this as a preface to her famous book, and even though it seems to be about trees, it's really about children. However I can truly see how this piece can also be applied to homeless animals.
Enjoy your tree!
There's a tree that grows in Brooklyn. Some people call it the Tree of Heaven. No matter where its seed falls, it makes a tree, which struggles to reach the sky. It grows in boarded up plots and out of neglected rubbish heaps. It grows up out of cellar gratings. It is the only tree that grows out of cement. It grows lushly ... survives without sun, water and seemingly without earth. It would be considered beautiful except that there are too many of it.
Betty Smith 1896-1972
