A nice article. My DH gave me a special plumeria seedling on our 24th anniversary and I am in the process of registering it as 'ventiquattro' (which is Italian for twenty-four).

Ive done it somewhat differently since none of those special anniversaries you mentioned were part of my life.
My first cat's ashes are buried in one of the flower beds with a Red Osier Dogwood My father has a Morden Sunrise Rose and my mother has a Peony Raspberry Sundae ( because she loved Raspberries and Ice Cream!) Some of their ashes are mxed with the shrubs roots. And there are commenerative plaques too.

Memorial trees are special, too! If either of my parents choose to be cremated one day, I hope some of their ashes will end up under the crooked willow in our yard...

Not a tree, but I do have red tulips as a memorial for my uncle. :-)

How about planting a special tree for your next "milestone" birthday?

Good idea critter! Didnt think of that one - thats another two years though and it will have to be a shrub - no space for another tree!
