Memorial Day in Metuchen

Fans of the purple leaf plum soap opera know that this tree, as seen in my yard, is also known as "Gregory's Tree." And Gregory has built quite a fan base as well with his cute pictures and poems. You can hear Gregory's sweet little 6-year-old voice on this year's Memorial Day slide show. It's not really tree-related, but Memorial Day in Metuchen is near and dear to my heart, as are my trees, so come have a look. I'm SO proud of Gregory for working on that little voice over! (You'll notice in the credits, however, that he is listed as "Greg." I'm really not quite sure when THAT happened!)

Click here for the 2007 Memorial Day slide show.
Be sure to turn up the sound! Peace, Julie

While the Tree Grower's Diary has been in existence since 1996 (as a notebook) and since 1999 (at Coffeedrome), this new, independent site was launched on April 4, 2006. The blog posts here go from April 2006 through 2007. After that, all Tree Growers Diary blog posts appear in my main blog, the City of Nouns. Click here to go straight to the tree category.
