Trees are really amazing creations. As they are coming out of their winter rags and putting on their spring finery, I am amazed anew at their beauty and strength. Bright greens and dark greens, some flowering, some leaving pollen all over my car, but all stretching up as if reaching for the heavens.
Have you noticed that some trees are stronger than others? Years ago we had some flowering pears, beautiful when blooming, beautiful in shape, but they grew so fast they were easily broken by the wind. Others, like magnolias, have shallow roots that the wind can easily uproot.
