A World of Their Own

A woman and three children ensconced by the spread of a magnificent tree, totally absorbed in the private world they are sharing. What would our world be like without the drama and beauty of such magnificent trees?

Trees give us not only beauty and add dimension to our world, they give us shade, provide animal habitat, wood for all our human "creature comfort" needs, and hold the soil in place. They grow everywhere in amazing diversity, until we raze and burn the forests.

We can all help the Earth and help to insure human survival by planting an extra tree or two in our yards, or by sending in Action Alerts that address issues such as clear-cutting for industry and rainforest preservation. Join the World Wildlife Fund or the Nature Conservancy or the Rainforest Action Network, to put in YOUR two cents! (See links to other environmental organizations in the sidebar of this blog.)

The way I look at it, the "Tree of Life" is at the heart of life.

  1. This is such an inspiring and soothing photograph. There is an award over at blog waiting for you that I hope you will accept. Thank you so much for sharing your talent with the world! Cindy at Rosehaven Cottage

  2. Thank you for visiting, Cindy, and for your kind words! An award? That's exciting. Where is it listed?

  3. Absolutely excellent composition. Especially the tree layout...anna :)

  4. A wonderful photo! I love trees too... and am always sad when one falls or is taken down.

  5. Thank you for commenting, Helen! I often look up, because of my love for trees. I've been surprised a couple of times when friends asked me why I'm "always looking up." I thought everyone did that!


I try to respond to comments whenever I can. I ALWAYS appreciate your visits and friendship, and I will reciprocate with visits to your site. Thanks for sharing parts of your blogging journey with me. I value each and every one of you.

NOTE: Please, no more memes, schemes, or awards. They're fun and they may help us to know each other better, but I'd rather spend the time reading your posts and having you READ mine!

Happy blogging!
