Here's what my original Favorite Tree #1 post said:
Protege at Life, Work and Pleasure gave me a tag to do Ten Favorite Things that start with T. I groveled around until I realized how many of them have to do with trees. The trees in this and the next 9 posts are trees that mean a lot to me, mostly because of experiences I shared with loved ones in, on, or around them.
This one is my earliest favorite. It's my rendition of the apple tree in the backyard where I grew up. My sister and I spent hours there. The bucket is what we used to pull up our lunches. The sneakers (which kind of look more like boudoir slippers) represent us, up in the tree, barefoot.
