Redbud Tree thriving since 2007 planting. Jane, Amy and Jesse
Here are the classic heart shaped leaves of the tree, native to Ohio, that Peg and I came to the Cathedral in the spring of 2007 to dedicate to the life and values of Paul Henry Weaver, 1910 - 1982. He was a strong proponent of learning from nature: He often took photos of mushrooms to support Peg's passion, with a small ruler with the classic quote from Louis Agassiz "Study Nature, not books". Someday, I would like to create a monument in the Cloister Garden dedicated to those values honoring both parents with Peace Poles to honor in many languages the value of peace in the hearts of all peoples throughout the world. Here are Jane Newell, and Amy Brown checking out the leaf shapes when Jesse looking on with the cathedral tower in the background.
