Article: The Christmas Tree: Eastern red cedar
BennysPlace Beverly Hills, CA It is so important to focus on the human side of gardening. It is the personal, emotional stories that give the garden its light and life. You have a wonderful ability of sharing these stories Sharon.
Yet another delightful read and I thank you.
Sharran (Zone 7a) Nice to know we think along the same branches, Ben. My feelings exactly. Thank you for taking the time to read the article.
Merry Christmas to you and yours.
KyWoods Melbourne, KY (Zone 6a) I agree--what a heartwarming story, so filled with love, yet still gave us a chuckle with your cousin being 'bossed around by an eight-year-old." Love it!
Edit: Our hillside is covered with those cedars, and I will think about the Native American story now when I go for my hikes between them. Thanks for the history!

Sharran (Zone 7a) Hi KY,
Thank you for your words. Hard to write about memories without a few tears, but I always try to find a smile in there somewhere. That bossy demeanor served me well when I taught, though, had to have something since I wasn't big enough to boss them around with my size!
Glad you liked the story, and thank you for writing. I always enjoy hearing from you.
Dutchlady1 Naples, FL (Zone 10a) I'm late to read this but what a wonderful story and what beautiful feelings you have evoked.
Thank you Sharon.
Sharran (Zone 7a) And thank you, Dutchlady.
Your words always mean a lot.
This story is a hard one for me to tell, and also hard for me to read after writing it.
So I spent an hour on the phone with my brother tonight, just because.
