How ever you look at it – we need trees!

Tree7

A little lonely out there on it’s own, but it’s not giving up just yet…..

Tree8

What a lesson in resilience!

Tree6

And when life gets topsy turvy, think like a tree and get grounded!

Tree5

Up there – in the wild blue yonder!

Tree4

Who hasn’t dreamed of living in a tree house?

Tree3

New life – persistence pays off.

Tree2

More new life.

Tree1

Yes indeed, however you look at it, we need trees.ย  Need more convincing?

Trees

I think that I shall never see
A poem lovely as a tree.

A tree whose hungry mouth is prest
Against the earth’s sweet flowing breast;

A tree that looks at God all day,
And lifts her leafy arms to pray;

A tree that may in summer wear
A nest of robins in her hair;

Upon whose bosom snow has lain;
Who intimately lives with rain.

Poems are made by fools like me,
But only God can make a tree.

  1. What kind of birds are those in the tree? They look rather striking – handsome, that is. And the light in that last photo is marvelous.

    Nature’s tenacity and resiliance is remarkable. After our last hurricane, it was unearthly around here – the fish were gone, the birds and animals were gone, and even the insects were gone. I’ll never forget the night I was sitting right here at this desk and heard a night heron for the first time in weeks. What a blessing!

    • The birds Linda, are magpies. I’ll do a post just on them soon, a great character bird.
      I can understand your relief at hearing a night heron after the hurricane. There are some silences that are not welcome aren’t there!

    • I’d love to have a stand of the casuarinas close to the house, just to listen to them sing. ๐Ÿ™‚ I know just the place for them….. maybe one day I’ll be able to plant them.

  2. Beautifully done. Wonderful series of trees, and you’ve shown some amazing ways they “hold on” under rough conditions. I’m so glad you included one of my all-time favorite poems with this, so appropriate.
