Queen Elizabeth Plants a Tree .. How about You?

British embassy gardener digs in for queen’s visit

By ADRIAN HIGGINS - The Washington Post

WASHINGTON — This is how you plant a tree for a queen: Measure the root ball carefully, drag the dead-weight bundle into its planting hole, cut back the wire basket holding the burlap, and leave just enough of the soil backfilling undone for the tree planting ceremony.
Jim Adams is preparing to do this for Queen Elizabeth II’s impending state visit to Washington. The horticulturist at the eight-acre garden at the British Embassy residence will be on hand next Tuesday as Her Majesty symbolically installs a hybrid English oak on the south lawn. “She’ll have some ceremonial soil throwing,” he said, looking at the little orange flag that marks the tree’s permanent home. “I’m not going to give her the bolt cutters and tell her to cut the basket off.”
This may take a degree of self-control for Adams, who hates to see idle hands in the garden.
In the 18 months since he took charge of the garden around the stately red brick palace by Sir Edwin Lutyens, Adams has set about revitalizing one of the highest profile gardens on Embassy Row. He has hired other gardeners, enlisted a cadre of keen-as-mustard volunteers, and set about imbuing his army of cultivators with energy and enthusiasm that are almost a match for his own.
A slight, boyish-looking native of Michigan, Adams is mindful of the iconic place of the garden in British mythology, and yet he is reviving a tired landscape in a way that is neither strictly British nor distinctly American. It is, however, entirely Jim Adams. His style is a Type A blend of organization and inspiration, and those who have seen Adams’ work elsewhere have little doubt that the ambassador and his wife, Sir David and Lady Catherine Manning, have got themselves one helluva gardener.
“I think he’s one of the best plantsmen in the country,” says Derya Samadi, one of his assistants, “and they’re lucky to have him here.”
Adams, 40, is working furiously to prepare the garden for the royal visit. Any dead branches have been excised in recent weeks. A medlarfruit tree that blew over in a summer storm and refused to leaf out will be grist for the chipper before the official festivities. The cool and warm greenhouses are stuffed with perennials, annuals and tropicals that have been nurtured through the winter and will decorate the garden, residence and portico.
Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip begin their official tour today in Richmond, Va., and conclude the visit Tuesday, hosting a dinner for President and Mrs. Bush at the residence. Monarch and consort will hold a Buckingham Palace-style garden party May 7 for embassy staff. The tree planting is scheduled for the next day.

Trees and One Prayer

To our dear friends and supporters of Plant a Tree USA™,

This beautiful song was sent to us as a gift ... and we share it with you, a prayer.

Click http://youtube.com/watch?v=BQeeZDkMCUQ and raise the volume!

by Karl Anthony

If I had one prayer, Id pray for people who hate
Maybe Im out of my mind ...or deep in my faith
A man grows old ...when his souls in pain
Only love can loosen that chain

But if I offer you grace, will it cause any change
And do I appear weak, if I calm my rage
I think of revenge, but will I become
The thing I despise, when a heart goes numb

Ill say a prayer, hoping it finds ...people who hate
I send it now, to heal the hearts ...of people who hate

If only one song ...could silence hate
And end all the war ...before its too late
If a cold mind ...could begin to feel
Then the fear in our world ...has a chance to heal

Ill say a prayer, knowing it finds ...people who hate
I send it now, to heal the hearts ...of people who hate
......pray for people who hate
All of our thoughts ...can set the stage
For the power of love ...is larger than rage
When we take revenge ...we will become
The hate we despise ...as our soul goes numb

I have One Prayer ...for the world to hear
Its a cry for mercy ...the last of our tears
Let hate dissolve ... let the past reveal
That love has shown us what is real

Angels above, quiet the pain ...in people who hate
Im sending One Prayer, to heal the hearts ...in people who hate

One prayer.....Pray!

(May all be loved, may all be blessed, may all feel peace....pray for people who hate)

Im sending love to people who hate
I must be out of my mind ...or deep in my faith

You may ask - What does this have to do with trees?

Why is Plant a Tree USA™ sending out a prayer to whose who hate?

It has everything to do with trees, and everything to do with our goal ... it is about faith and belief and doing whatever it takes to Create a Healthy Mother Earth, with a Passion!
