He who plants a tree…

I planted this double cherry blossom tree two springs ago for a wonderful client in Park Slope, Brooklyn… and am jumping for joy to see this beautiful baby thriving!

PLANT A TREE

 

He who plants a tree
Plants a hope.
Rootlets up through fibres blindly grope;
Leaves unfold into horizons free.
So man’s life must climb
From the clods of time
Unto heavens sublime.
Canst thou prophesy, thou little tree,
What the glory of thy boughs shall be?

by Lucy Larcom
1824-1893
