You know, I walked past that a half dozen times and didn't appreciate that the tree was dead and that those were leaves. I was thinking it was left over from St. Patrick's Day...guess I was just in a fog from all the other activities!

I'm so glad that you got a photo of that. I never had my camera handy to take a photo.
Maybe I will crochet a vine for my fire escape.

We got tickled looking at the leaves too!! It should say "never give up." lol


Hope you had a Wonderful Mothers Day! Stop On Over I'm having a Virtual Baby Shower for my daughter Breezy, games and prizes, would love to see you there! Let's Get This Party Started!! Hugs, Diane


Thanks again for sharing these little signs and wonders. This tree makes me think of Guerilla Knitting by grrl + dog down Australia way...

Oh what a great thing to have created


love it. how clever to think of knitting leaves and to tie to a tree. maybe quilted leaves would look nice also!

Morning Charlotte!

Congrats to your sweet grad and all of you!

My Mom is from Morgantown - she grew up and lived there until she married.

Love the leaves!

Glad everyone enjoyed the tree's 2nd incarnation! I made those leaves up while seated there for dinner with friends one evening. We were enjoying the arrival of Spring and couldn't help but notice this little dead tree. The finished product has prompted those passing by to smile and laugh. What more could you ask for!


how nice to hear from the knitter herself. when Syd and I passed this tree I insisted she take a snap of it!
