It is a wonderful honour to be involved in your life and this gift is a celebration of your arrival in the world. I promise to always be there to help guide you and look forward to watching you grow as strong and beautiful as your grove of trees. With my love and lots of hugs, Auntie Kim xxxx
Think Like a Tree
by Karen I. Shragg
Soak up the sun
Affirm life's magic
Be graceful in the wind
Stand tall after a storm
Feel refreshed after it rains
Grow strong without notice
Be prepared for each season
Provide shelter to strangers
Hang tough through a cold spell
Emerge renewed at the first signs of spring
Stay deeply rooted while reaching for the sky
Be still long enough to
hear your own leaves rustling.
Birch, juniper, willow, aspen and bird cherry were planted at the RSPB reserve at Corrimony in autumn 2008.
