|The White Tree of Annúminas by shirebound||13 Review(s)|

|*sigh* That was absolutely lovely. How wonderful to catch a glimpse of Sam, Gardener to the King, and Elessar, and a son of Halbarad into the bargain. As usual, you write in a way that draws me into the scene--I can almost feel the soil beneath my bare feet. The mystical underpinnings are nicely done as well.|
Author Reply: Thank you, what lovely compliments. I spend so much time trying to imagine these scenes, and am delighted that they ring true for you.

|I like that Sam got his say in how the seed was planted. Sweet to have the tree spread to the north. |
Author Reply: I couldn't imagine this scene without Sam!

|A sweet story! Love Sam and Aragorn's reverence and their interaction and the invoking of Yavanna.|
Namarie, God bless, Antane :)

Author Reply: Thank you for your good wishes. I'll keep writing as long as folks are kind enough to keep reading!
Hobbits do tend to sneak into most of my stories, those rascals. :)

|Beautiful idea and beautiful little story!|
I especially liked this line:
hero of the West and gardener of renown, in whose heart your song is alive
Author Reply: Yay, I'm happy you like this. I suspect that Sam was Very Famous and amazingly respected by then. But still Sam. :)
