What Tree Would You Be?

--by flowergirl, posted Mar 25, 2010

I was walking through the woods with our 2 dogs that are spaniels along with my daughter and we were talking about trees.  

I said that trees felt like freinds standing there quietly for us and Heather, my daughter, said they were leaning over in the breeze to give us a hug.  She said if she came back to life as a tree she would be a cherry blossom tree so she could drop pretty pink blossom everywhere to make it pretty. I don't know what tree I would like to be but I think I would be a lavender plant  so my little flowers could help people relax, ease their headaches, lift their spirits and be used around the home to make it smell lovely.

What tree would you be?

Thanks for asking, that was fun!

I'd love to create a shady spot for a family to picnic under. And if I'm lucky...many birds will call me their "home" :)

Thanks for helping me think about that! It was fun.
