this picture makes my heart leap. They both look wonderful. I wonder if this was a stop before church services? The queen is very engaged during Holy Week. I feel like the daffodils in the background are making up for her Maundy Thursday bouquets in my mind.

I love this picture especially. I wonder if HM has been able to see some of the rest of the family in person too.

Her health is amazing. Not all 94 year olds are walking about and keeping on with life. Britain is lucky she has not had a long slow decline with illnesses. People are so used to her just always being there and doing her duties. Remarkable, really.

What a great smile in the above photo.

I love the combination of an Hermes scarf and hand knit Fair Isle gloves.

The Queen doesn't look much older than her son (I'd guess about 5-8 years, certainly not 21).

She's in a really good shape.

She is, and this photo makes me unaccountably happy.

There are few things more joyous than seeing the Queen smile. She has such an infectious smile, and it always appears earnest and truthful.

This photo reminds me that despite the titles, money etc, the Windsors are too a family that have been separated by the pandemic. Seeing a loved one in the flesh after some time brings overwhelming feelings of happiness and gratitude.

I agree, she is in fantastic shape for her age! I often forget that she is almost 95, she puts many of us to shame!! Is horseriding the only sporty hobby she has had? If so it shows how beneficial it is!

In some ways it is hard to look at these images and know that within a week they would be mourning Philip but we also now know what they were doing: https://www.msn.com/en-au...ueens-jubilee/ar-BB1gPiR7

I hope that this is successful and would love to see everyone plant a native tree in their home country (or pay the right authorities to plant one on their behalf in the right place). What a wonderful memorial that would be. (A girl can dream can't she?)

My uncle planted a tree for me, named it after me. It’s great fun to talk about the tree, check in on it. “How is my tree doing”? In that regard, it will be a fun legacy project for people to check in on “The Queens Tree”

it is a really lovely picture and a Treebilee sounds like a marvellous idea. I am sure that the Queen and Charles knew exactly what was going on and just took a break to go wandering around the grounds

This is a marvelous project.

We moved, 37 years ago, to a farmhouse on two acres. There were very few trees apart from two tall maples on either side of the drive, and most of the land was planted in hay. We began putting in trees and shrubs the next spring, some just slips from the state Extension service and others specifically bought, and two Lindens (good bee trees) from a friend's yard who said they weren't city trees?? We watched the back two thirds of the land go from field, to shrub/scrub to young forest stage with plenty of understory. There's a windbreak on the west side which our neighbor admires from his house across the field. Around the house we planted a sycamore which now brings welcome shade to the back of the house along with trees for for each of our dogs and shrubs for our cats - the cremains are planted with each, and a few apple trees.

We've been privileged to watch the wildlife return too - we found a fox den near the house after a two week trip one spring - which confined our unhappy dog to the backyard until the kits were raised and gone. The birds have formed a steady progression along with the trees. We've gone from Field Sparrows, Dickssisels and Bob-o-Links to Catbirds and Brown Thrashers, along with Orchard and Baltimore Orioles. Purple Martins, Bluebirds, Tree Swallows and House Wrens use the bird houses, along with the usual Robins, Mourning Doves, Red Wing Blackbirds, Grackles and resident Cardinals, and migrants which stop by each spring and fall. The birds have contributed their own plants, Redoiser Dogwoods, Elderberries, wild Currents, Grapevine and Virginia Creeper, to name a few, and an abundance of Mulberries.

Last month the Gov dedicated The COVID-19 pandemic Memorial Grove, a small grove of native trees, planted at a state park near the first capitol.

I'd rather see projects like this, and The Queen's Green Canopy than any memorials in stone.

Off the soapbox now.

I would love to see the Royal Family focus more on British flora and fauna, especially the endangered species.  This is a neat undertaking, and I agree with Lady Liebe that this is much better than stone monuments/etc.

I'm still learning about gardening myself (sunk way too much money into my over enthusiastic, under educated gardening dreams last spring) but I know there are organizations that sell seeds/seedlings from historic trees (you can buy seedlings from Thomas Jefferson's trees, for example).  It could be cool to set up something like that with these trees, with all of the funds raised going straight back into British wildlife conservation.
