2 years ago I planted a Patmore Ash after learning the birch was terminal, knowing that as I watch this big tree go, I will have the new growth of a healthy tree to comfort me. This little Patmore Ash has become the Tree of Hope. 2 weeks after planting it, my neighbour Pat informed me she had uterine cancer. The next year the tree was taller and full of leaves and Pat was cured. Last fall I planted a bunch of lillies all around my little Tree of Hope when I found out my sister had breast cancer. This Spring I look forward to seeing them in full bloom for the first time and i will be reminded of my sister who willhave completed her treatment by then and will be back to living a full and healthy life.
