For Mother’s Day, we kids got my mom a hibiscus tree. Her gardenia tree died from last year a few weeks before this Mother’s Day, so she definitely needed another kind of tree!

When I was little, the tree I loved at our house was a willow in our backyard.  It was the biggest tree I’d ever seen. I loved to go sit and read under it during the summer. The branches made a canopy hanging over almost touching the ground.

Speaking of trees, today’s song refers to the willow tree. Check out the jazz standard “Willow Weep for Me” sung by Ella Fitzgerald.
