TREES PLANTED BY THE WATER

“Blessed is the man who trusts in the LORD . . . For he will be like a tree planted by the water.” Jeremiah 17:7-8a.

???????????????????

Pioneer Park is my all around favorite park.  Partly, because it is handy for my camera — and camera friendly through the seasons, and partly because of my gratitude to the far-sighted early and recent caretakers.

Over a century ago, residents of Walla Walla, WA saw the need for a park.  They dedicated land with numerous springs of water, hired planners, shipped in trees, and the park became a living reality.  Folks still plant trees where age and storms leave bare areas, and the park thrives.

And did you ever see such a collection of grand old trees?  Expect more about them if you follow this blog.

And trust the LORD.   :}  Smiles
