I come to understand you more and more through your writing. Only you as a small child would want your little brother to have a tree. Your "ladies" were incredible people, just like you. I had started some cedars at my old house also. I don't have evergreens here. I went back and dug those little trees so I could see them here also.
Great job!!

Hi George, thank you.

Well, baby brothers need Christmas trees, too!
I am glad you have the cedars at your house, hard to believe they don't grow wild there in your neck of the woods. They'll give you some color against your snow. And speaking of, we did get about an inch of the white stuff last night! It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas!!

Thank you for writing, always nice to hear from you.
Merry Christmas.

Our soil is too alkaline for the cedars. These 2 I planted and amended so I could have one of my favorite little evergreens here in the hollar'
Great Christmas memories of real Christmas trees. My eye got a little wet(not tears mind you! LOL) when I read this article.

Sharon, This was so well written and nicely balanced and touching too. I enjoyed reading it so much.

I only have one problem with cedars; aren't they a little prickly? The smell is unforgettable.

Hi Gloria,
Cedars are less prickly than most, I think. And the scent is amazing.

I do appreciate your words, please know they are always well received. Thank you so much.

Happy Holidays to you!
Sharon
