Plant a tree for you and me

Thu May 2, 2019, 12:46 AM


Summary - document in works
Hi everyone! Bouncing Kieke 

A couple of days ago some of you received a rather unusual note from me. :ashamed:
At first I thought I might be crazy and I should not do it, but I still went for it :flirty:
On the list - people I like, some of them dear friends. :aww:
Tangerine Tree 
After sending a wave of notes, the feedback completely overwhelmed me
- I did not really know what to expect...
:Gladiolus: 
I sent the notes with a joyful feeling, full of hope,
and I got back very heartwarming answers, which moved me to tears...
Another beautiful moment which shows me how special our community here is...
Heart Tree 

I wish I would have sent more notes for some of you that I did not manage to reach out to,
but the amount of feedback took a lot of time, and I did not manage to get around for it.
If you see this journal and you like the idea, please consider it like a personal note to you.

 Flower Heart 

While my motivation is something which I prefer to keep one on one,
several friends suggested we should maybe have like an open community event.
Get Together 

I am not sure how,
but maybe you would enjoy looking around at others who liked the idea to plant something,
for somebody
somewhere, no matter how far,
a family member,
or a friend,
virtual or irl.
:earth:
An act which benefits all of us around the world!

Cuddles: Apple Tree

Did you know that our watercooker makes a strong impact on our environment?

Spit Laugh

yep, stronger than you would guess...!


If every watercooker counts,
every plant also does!
:nod:

in a pot on the window bench,
on a balcony or on a terrace;
in a garden,
or in the nature out there
(where it is allowed to plant)

apple

Every single plant
counts!
BIG or small!

Plant a tree for you and me#plantatreeforyouandme

:wave: Hello dear friends, a few days ago I received a beautiful note from my friend :iconandorada: 
In her note she told me that her mother loved plants and asked me if I could plant something for her.
I thought the idea was spectacular! Of course I accepted immediately, it seems to me an act of love
so beautiful, so noble, it is a very beautiful gesture 
+|F2U|+ Autumn Tree  Planting a tree is a great thing, to see it grow, to take care of it, to see its flowers,
its leaves, its fruits ... if you plant a tree I know that it will fill your soul with very beautiful feelings, I will also: D
The idea is easy: plant a tree in memory of our loved ones or just for others
and give all our love and care, is
THE TREETREES

Plant A Tree For You And MeHello to all my dear friends, at this start of hoping a beautiful Summer to all of us! 
Not a long time ago I received a very beautiful letter from my dear friend Andorada  
:iconandorada: and I read her diary with pleasure.  
I found it there such a beautiful idea  and it seems to me wonderful to try to plant a tree or a flower for someone you love.
All of us love someone who maybe is not longer with us or somebody who maybe is very far away ...
When I  say this,  I also think about the strong friendships that have been created in this wonderful space called dA. I know that many of us would like to meet in real life and give a real hug to each other with  love, but most of the time this is not possible and then this idea of Andorra is really special.:heart:
We always dedicate each other beautiful pictures and words, what if we will try to plant a little life in a

Bee We should definitely take care of these little beeings - they are so fragile in our days...
we also left the grass completely wilde, left all the flowers do their things, and there are plenty of insects around. It rained so much that it is quite wilde - it starts to be a bit too wilde for my taste :giggle: But all for a good cause :D the cats enjoy it too

Glad to hear they are doing great! So they are 2!!! Now I get it :giggle: I am so happy you are doing this! :heart:
I also brought a willow with me now - in autumn I found some brances on the floor, and I picked them up to play with them. After some hours I put them in a glass of water, and they stood there undisturbed till now - to my surprize, they got rooots!!! The long part of the branch got dry, but the roots are strong, and healthy leaves are growing on it. I thought It would just die... I will have to see how it goes if I plant it now - wish me luck!!

NP...............BE careful.  I will take a pic. of the Willow branches I planted!!!!!!!  I am going to have to find some strong people the plant it by the river. As long as they have lots of water they just keep on going.  I will be sorry to see it go but at least it will be happy and good for others to see.

No need for luck.  If it gets too big don't plant it near any structures.
