woody's tree


great friends of ours gave us the idea (and a giftcard to a garden center) to plant something in honor of woody. since we currently rent, we decided to see if the park where we have our community garden would allow us to plant a tree there. our hope is to stay in lakewood when we buy a home since we so love this community, so this seemed like the best option. brad contacted the parks department and they were more than willing to let us plant woody's tree there. we chose a red maple (october glory to be exact) from their list of approved trees because according to brad, it would provide our children lots of helicopters to play with in the spring and would be so beautiful in the fall so we might always remember our faithful friend.

I think that is such a wonderful idea. We may have to do that too.

Your sweet puppy had such a loving face.
