A Grove of trees in the Scottish Highlands
Happy 50th birthday to

Barbara H. Zurrer Brandreth grove

I think that I shall never see

A poem as lovely as a tree

A tree whose hungry mouth is prest

Against the earth's sweet flowing breast;

A tree that looks at God all day,

And lifts her leafy arms to pray;

A tree that may in Summer wear

A nest of Robins in her hair;

Upon whose bosom snow has lain;

Who intimately lives with rain.

Poems are made by fools like me,

But only God can make a tree.

-Joyce Kilmer

Most folks are about as happy as they make up their minds to be.- Abraham Lincoln

He who plants a tree plants hope.- Lucy Larcom

Your grove of trees

The trees in this grove will be carefully planted in protected sites in the Scottish Highlands where they will create homes for wildlife and forests for the future.
