Quotation of the Day

Tulip Tree

>> Sunday, June 1, 2008

We planted this tree on my daughter’s 1st birthday.
On spring time, it blooms with these lovely yellow flowers.
The tulip tree is part of the magnoliaceae family and it smells good.


I think that I shall never see
A poem lovely as a tree.
A tree whose hungry mouth is prest
Against the earth’s sweet flowing breast;
A tree that looks at God all day,
And lifts her leafy arms to pray;
A tree that may in Summer wear
A nest of robins in her hair;
Upon whose bosom snow has lain;
Who intimately lives with rain.
Poems are made by fools like me,
But only God can make a tree.

— Joyce Kilmer

And i though tulips are only shrubs. :) that's so nice. to have a tree planted for your child's birthday. if you do that every year, she'd have a little forest to celebrate her life with.

I don't think I've seen a tulip tree before. It's lovely.

So there are tulip trees and there are tulip bushes/shrubs? Magka-iba ano?

Flowers are among God's most precious gifts to us earthlings.
