An informative sampling focused on herbs and tea with an occasional sprinkling of fairy dust and a glimpse into family activities too. The contributions to this blog are the combined efforts of the sisters of The Rosemary House and Sweet Remembrances.
This European Weeping Beech (Fagus sylvatica f. pendula) is 60 feet in height and has a 90 foot spread. It was an original tree planted in the early 1900's at the Morris Arboretum. That is the brown part in the middle. It is slowly aging and decaying, however its legacies live on! Where ever the branches have wept down and touched the ground they have formed roots. As the roots grow, the tree sprouts upward and forms a new ring of trees around the "parent". And the circle of life continues.
