HAVING LIVED AMONG TREES

Some of you know I’ve lived in the forest.

Maybe because I did not grow up with palms,
I really treasure these trees in Southern California.
Travel Tue.

 

Life must be so boring when a little boy does
not have a tree to climb, or hang onto a branch!
Even for me as a little girl, the tree was
my favorite place to sit in.

As fairy tale like a tree is when covered with snow,
!’m always sad to see burnt trees, since I know that
it takes more than 10 years before a new tree of
a decent size has replaced the ugly remains.

Trees also make for great reflections!

Trees make great places for orchids to fasten
themselves to.

    1. Luckily I don’t go as far as hugging trees, lol. I was perpelxed, when one of my guests at one time started doing that. I always had thought that that was an exxageration or a fairy tale. Obviously not!

  1. Oh how I love how adventurous this little man is! I am not as adventurous as him when I was his age especially I was quite a big kid when I was young, absolutely not athletic! Sending you hugs of this new month dearest Jesh!

  2. So true. My grandlittles always loved climbing, and made this gma nervous, but they had fun and no mishaps. True on the trees. Was nice to see those when I visited CA.

  3. Beautiful photos, I love the picture of the reflections. As I child I always yearned for a tree house – somehow kids and trees just go together!

  4. Where would we be without trees? Actually that was a stupid rhetorical question as we wouldn’t be here without the trees!

    1. We had lunch there with my daughter and family, a few doors down – you got the feeling of this place spot on – it’s very relaxing and casual there!

  5. I love the reflection in the birdbath and a boy always needs a tree…and a dog! Thanks for linking up and have a great weekend.

    1. Sigh, our son wanted a dog so badly, but I was in grad school, with 3 kids, and a hubby who commuted to work for more than an hours. So we always comforted him with that he could have a dog when he lived on his own!

  6. Beautiful images!! I grew up in a National Forest so my brother and I climbed lots of trees.
    My forest ranger dad could read trees like a book. I took him on a drive to southeast Oklahoma through the woods and he could tell the areas that had had fires years ago just at a glance.

    1. When you grew up in the forest, it must have been a big adjustment, when you moved away from home, or? Forest rangers are very knowledgable people, which shows in the comment you made about him.
      As a teen I only drew trees and faces – that was my whole repertoire in art:) So I always was interested in trees. Had no idea moving back to the suburbs I would miss the trees of the forest where we only lived for 6 years so much!

    1. I have thought the same on and off, becasue trees can’t help being pulled into the events and situations since they can’t move, lol! Wow, can you capture that Yew tree sometime? Thanks, my photos are all for all the memes/challenges I participate in, but at the same time I try to have a theme.

    1. Thank you Jutta! The joie de vivre must have come out since I am so happy we came out of that ice storm alive. Read yesterday that it resulted in more than two dozen fatalities.

  8. We have more things in common than photography, it seems:):) The birdbath is a less romantic lid of a garbage bin, I am afraid, lol. But we can pretend, right?

  9. When I was a girl we had giant redwood in our backyard and that was where you would find me most of the time…way up in the tippy top branches daydreaming and pretending.

    I love that reflection in the birdbath!
