Trees around us

So many trees are in blossom and we’ve had a camera handy to take some photos.
Hubby took these with my phone at the picnic area where we take Maggie sometimes:
On my walk the other day I took these of Nature’s red chandelier in someone’s garden:

And today it was the turn of the yellow one which didn’t turn out too badly seeing as the wind was blowing!
and the pink, though this was more of a bush than a tree

Trees, so lovely, different and beautiful in their blossom glory.
My Dad loved this poem and the song version below is by Mario Lanza.
My original post on it is here


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.

Poem by Joyce Kilmer (1886-1918)
Music written in 1922 by Oscar Rasbash

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    Happily for us, Mother Nature isn’t letting COVID get in her way. So wonderful to see all that rebirth and beauty. It inspires me and makes me feel hopeful.

    Beautiful photos. We have a flowering crab apple in our front yard. It is finally big enough to look pretty when it flowers. Right now we are having a storm and it is raining pink petals…
