  3. I love to look at trees too. Especially the gnarly older ones. The stories they could tell.

  4. Yes, I appreciate trees as well. They provide us with great beauty in the spring and fall, shade in the summer, and wood as a building material. Don't know what we would do without them.

  6. I so appreciate trees ... if they could talk what a tale many of them could tell ... especially the older ones!

  7. Is it any wonder that the Tree of Life is such a common symbol in the mythologies of various cultures?

  8. Me too. They are my most favorite thing in nature. In fact, I'm outside as I type this, looking at trees.

    The Best.

    1. It's been the perfect week for that. The weather has been phenomenal. Although it is raining today.

    2. Rained here today, too. Getting colder now, too.

      Two more days of staycation.

    3. Isn't it shocking how fast the week goes? Did you have a nice day yesterday?

    4. Oh my gosh, yes. We found that there was a local store that had the same paint and we hit that, after baking in the morning with a great breakfast. Then we hit Barnes in the evening and home to watch something in the Lemon Tart Room.

      Simple but wonderful.

      Now I'm headed to finish dish (I did two more bakes tonight), and then we're headed to watch a movie. Thanks for asking and boogie boogie.

  9. Cool stuff about treas But trees also communicate with each other and help each other in fighting off diseases. Research is actually being done on these topics.

    I respect there presence.

  12. I really enjoyed reading "Tree Magick." I can't think of a better choice for T. One of the reasons I love Tolkien's writing so much is because it is filled with wonderful trees. His short story "Leaf by Niggle" can be read on many levels and has often been a source of comfort for me. I am Niggle personified! I'm glad to hear that your daughter is enjoying that magical time as a freshette. Do they even use that term anymore? I suspect not! Have a lovely weekend!

    1. I've actually never heard the term freshette, before! That is very endearing. I'll have to mention it to her. She is having an incredible time. And even keeping her grades up. I'm very proud of her.

  13. They've been doing it well for 370 million years

  14. Trees are beautiful. This time of year they're beautiful for their lively colors, and in the spring and summer they're beautiful just by being green! I'm not so crazy about their winter garb, but I guess that's what we have pine trees for.

    1. Yes! Those evergreens are very welcome this time of year when we're starved for greenery. A tree for every season!

  15. Love this. I'm a tree lover myself. I also think trees are the houses of the beautiful birds of nature!
