The morning woods were utterly new. A strong yellow light pooled beneath the trees; my shadow appeared and vanished on the path, since a third of the trees I walked under were still bare, a third spread a luminous haze wherever they grew, and another third blocked the sun with new, whole leaves. ~ Annie Dillar
Can you guess that what this post is about, you clever people? Of course you can. So there's not much of an introduction required, is there? Let's go look at some trees.
The tree is more than first a seed, then a stem, then a living trunk, and then dead timber. The tree is a slow, enduring force straining to win the sky. ~ Antoine de Saint-ExuperyThis interesting cluster of trunks was found along the the northern shore of Chemong Lake, leading up to the causeway which crosses over the lake and into Bridgenorth, just northwest of Peterborough
All our wisdom is stored in the trees. ~ Santosh KalwarThe sad remains of a felled soldier in one of our parks.
If trees could scream, would we be so cavalier about cutting them down? We might, if they screamed all the time, for no good reason. ~ Jack HandyHere's a closer look at its beautiful texture.
Rest is not idleness, and to lie sometimes on the grass under the trees on a summer's day, listening to the murmur of water, or watching the clouds float across the blue sky, is by no means waste of time.
~ John LubbockA friend and I took a walk around town, one beautiful late summer day and we sat for a while near the waters of Little Lake.
But down deep, at the molecular heart of life we're essentially identical to trees. ~ Carl SaganThe tree ahead of us was leaning ever so elegantly toward the water.
The true meaning of life is to plant trees, under whose shade you do not expect to sit. ~ Nelson HendersonElsewhere, this gentleman sat himself beneath the shade of the trees so that he could enjoy the company and sweetness of ducks - and a couple of gulls.
Plant trees. They give us two of the most crucial elements for our survival: oxygen and books.
~ Whitney BrownSame park, different day and a little bit closer to the water and to nightfall.
Trees indeed have hearts. ~ Henry David ThoreauThey say you're not supposed to shoot directly into the sun. But who are "they," anyway?
Let's take our hearts for a walk in the woods and listen to the magic whispers of old trees. ~ UnknownThis photo is actually from five years ago. It resurfaced when I was looking for something else and I thought it would want to join all of the other trees in this post.
Trees are poems that the earth writes upon the sky. ~ Kahlil GibranAs the sun made its way ever closer to the horizon, the scene brought a photographer into view. Along with the trees, he made an interesting silhouette against the gold of Little Lake
It is not so much for its beauty that the forest makes a claim upon men's hearts, as for that subtle something, that quality of air that emanates from old trees, that so wonderfully changes and renews a weary spirit. ~ Robert Louis StevensonSo come and have a seat with me among the trees, and we can watch the sun go down. There will Be more photos to take tomorrow, and I'll share those with you another day.
