Well, I thought wouldn't it be great to have an app that would allow you to inventory the trees in your immediate area and then be able to transmit this data to city hall. Then you could create another app to show all the trees on various streets, so when you went for a walk you could comment on each one - maybe even give then names - Charley the Chestnut....or something. Or record minute data, such as, trunk size and number of leaves, age, height etc. You can see why I knit. I love the microcosm.
You could even have competitions between neighbourhoods or towns and cities for tree diversity and coverage. I can see private funders opening up their wallets to add to their tree base and the city would reap the benefits by not having to shell out as much money to plant new trees each year.
Now, maybe we could combine trees with knitting sculptures - a little like yarn bombing only with taste. The problem with knitted "things" outdoors is they get worn and look very sad after a while. Somehow we have to inventory knitting and yarn available for viewing that maybe begins with yarn shops but extends to the local community.

Dinner? Something green and leafy - a salad. Here's a great link to a site that has lots of EASY recipes for salads. The pictures are of knitting patterns with either tree or leaf in the title - inspired by nature.
