I was happy to see the three small flags on the north side of the municipal building that indicate tree-planting sites.
I had been sad when the big tall black locust trees were cut down from back of the white house that was there.
I still miss those trees, especially in June when the big fragrant white flowers bloomed so sweet and buzzed with bees. They were good trees for the birds, too, giving them shelter, shade and insects to eat. Birds and mammals ate the seeds.
