Caddo Maples From My House to Yours


What can a girl do to acknowledge something truly wonderful in a person's life?

(Wonderful being such an inadequate word in this instance...)

Incredible, miraculous, amazing...simply splendid! (yes, I have been reading a British novel...) 

All inadequate.

After thinking about it for a while...

I came up with this revised question.

What can a person do to acknowledge something wonderfully transformative in a person's life?

An acknowledgment that is humble by comparison, and symbolic in intent

A gesture understood by giver and receiver to commemorate something...of the past, and of the future. 

Representing a connection between places and people and plans for this future...

of beauty and meaning, growth,

and yes, transformation.

  3. Hi. I found your blog through Google while searching for Caddo maples. I was wondering if you had any small ones growing because I would love to have a few. I can pay whatever you would like. These are tough little trees to find. Thank you!
