"The silver birch is a dainty lady,

She wears a satin gown;

The elm tree makes the old churchyard shady,

She will not live in town."

Childs Song in Spring by E Nesbit

This was a favourite verse of my Father's. From the window of our family home we had sight of several Silver Birch trees as well as a variety of other trees in the park across from our house. From large imposing Sycamore's to smaller flowering Cherry Blossoms.

Personally, I love to be amongst trees. They are so calming. I love nothing better than a walk through a wooded area and regularly can be found in such a pursuit with my husband and children.

In 2002 I lost my Mother and then in 2016 I lost my Father in the January and then my younger sister in the September. Initially, I considered supporting a grove of trees in memoriam for Mum, Dad and Gill but trees are such beautiful, vibrant, living entities that rather than dedicating this grove purely to their memory I want it to be an expression of gratitude for their lives and their legacy but also an expression of gratitude and thankfulness for other family members and other life events.
