Memorandum Monday

Monday has rolled around again, and that means it's time to
join in with the lovely Sian and
 share something that I've learnt over the weekend.
Tree plantings are emotional things.
That's not something I'd ever considered before.
I mean, you never see HM The Queen looking misty-eyed 
as she plants her gazillionth tree.
The tree in question was planted at the Royal Hospital Chelsea
in memory of our much-loved and much-missed Grandad Paddy.
You can see what Sian discovered over the weekend here

yes I can imagine that would be very emotional - lovely that he has a tree there. Have a good week

What a kind idea to plant a tree & such a way for that person, who's honour you plant in, to live on. Oh yes, it wold be a teary time for me as well.

If the Queen ever needs a trusty assistant with tree planting duties, I think TBC could be the perfect man for the job! What a lovely memorial to Paddy, I can imagine that it was an emotional time for you.

What a lovely thing to do. I bet he'd be so proud of that grandson standing up there, doing his bit (and I think the bright red hat is a nice touch, like a wave to the tunic)
