under the birches

by Jacki October. 02, 2011 645 views

I've spent almost 25 summers in northern Michigan. As the time to leave approaches again, I am reminded of a farewell greeting that the ‘old’ people used to say: “Be well until we meet again under the birches.” Now I'm thinking I may be one of the old people and I need to make sure the saying get's passed along. :-)

Gorgeous shot and I really like birches too. Hush up with the "I may be one of the. . . ." It's talk like that which [i]makes[/i] one old.
