From time to time I create a tree for one of our hospice families if I have a really specific reason. I won't post there reason for this one so that I don't even flirt with a HIPPA violation, but I will note that the silver (the bulk of the tree) represents our patient, and that the various colors represent specific family and friends.
Due to Covid-19, the location of the Allina Hospice Trees has changed from the former Allina Hospice office to J.A. Wedum Hospice Home in Brooklyn Park, MN. The trees are still under construction (the second half of the summer tree and the fall tree's glass leaves are being created) but these photos show the new location and the current progress. The order of the trees from left to right is summer, fall, winter, spring. These photos will be updated when the glass leaves have all been added.
