Whispering Willow (Oak)

What? It's Wordless Wednesday and I'm using words? How could I? I did post for Wordless Wednesday. It's right below this post. And I'm talking really softly right now, okay? I'm whispering, see? So is the willow oak.

I was reading The Dana Files just now, and she waxed quite eloquently about trees. You know Easter is coming, right? And you know your property taxes are due (if you live in California), yes? And your federal and state income taxes, right? Oh, and Earth Day is at the end of the month, yes?

But do you know that Arbor Day is April 27? It is. And you can join the National Arbor Day Foundation. For just $10. And besides feeling quite proud of your environmental self, forking over 10 bucks, you will also get 10 trees. Yes, 10 trees. And your tree choices seem infinite. We're not talking Charlie Brown Christmas trees, here, folks.

So, come on, pull the SUV over, pull the laptop off of its car perch, use your wireless, go to the National Arbor Day Foundation, join, get your trees, and then plant them. Celebrate life. Show your kids how.
