Mattie's Tree

Yesterday, I had a wonderful time traveling to three states in 9 hours. It may not be a record breaking event (LOL) but, I enjoyed it a lot. The purpose of our travel was to get our car tag and visit Mattie in Gulf Breeze, Florida. From Mississippi, we had to passed Alabama then, Florida but, the travel is only two hours so, I just elaborate for the three states. Anyway, we arrived Gulf Breeze before 1PM and we had lunch at Pensacola Beach area. The views are truly amazing! Of course, it's Florida! It should be!Meet Mattie and her 38 years old tree. This tree is as old as I am really! It is amazing because it stood there elegantly in her property. Mattie planted the tree from a twig she found in the yard. She just stuck it on the ground. Never would she imagine that it will survive and grow like this. The husband put a wooden signage to it with her name and the year she planted it.

This is one of the amazing stories that gave me a deep thought. With all the trees I planted in my whole life, was there any of it survive like this? How about you? Mattie is an amazing woman who made an amazing contribution to the environment with this beautiful tree. If you visit Gulf Breeze, Florida, look for Mattie's tree. She lives nearby the UFO man.
