A Special Tree

I planted this flowering cherry tree (with the help of the Avalon Garden Club) 20 years ago in memory of my father.

It sits at the end of “his” street, and appropriately, leans toward the ocean.

The tree has stood tall through Nor’easters and hurricanes; droughts and torrential rains.  I was especially worried after Sandy.  Yet, check out those healthy blooms!

It’s a sentimental symbol for our strong family roots on this island…
