Thank you for that very informative article. I have a very fond memory of a Hackberry tree in our local park. It grew in the middle of the playground and shaded the jungle gym and picnic tables.

When I first got my Collie puppy I took him to play at the playground, and I remember him licking up all the hackberry fruit lying around. He certainly enjoyed it!

Sadly, the tree lost a limb in a storm, and the Parks and Rec decided it was too dangerous to let it stay where the kids played. It was a beautiful, huge tree, and I hated to see it destroyed.

Thank you for reading the article, and for letting me know.

Funny thing about plants, sometimes they are well loved, and sometimes they are not. Hackberries are like that, I've found. But I enjoy learning about their history, and most of them, if we search long enough, have a purpose.

I hope you are all enjoying this spring day, but I think we are in for some high winds, those that the folks to the west of us had yesterday. I guess I need to go out and batten down the hatches.

Y'all have a good day.
Thanks again,

Hi Dutchlady,
I was thinking about you this morning, reading something on lore and legend. I followed my thoughts and they led me to an article you wrote a year ago about shamrocks, which I totally forgot about when I wrote mine for last week, also about shamrocks.
I know it is late, but I am going back into mine and create a link to yours. I hate when I inadvertently do things like that. My apologies to you.
Thank you for an opportunity to correct my mistake. I am so sorry.
