TO EARLY MAN....



To early man, trees were objects of awe and wonder.
The mystery of their growth, the movement of their leaves
and branches, the way they seemed to die and come again
to life in spring, the sudden growth of the plant from the
seed - all these appeared to be miracles as indeed
they still are, miracles of nature!
- Ruskin Bond, The World of Trees

  1. This makes me sad that we have really lost touch with early man. We need more sense of wonder.

  6. My garden has many, many trees, and I love them all. At present the lilacs are in flower, blue and white ones waving in the winds. Even the oak looks pretty. I would hate to live somewhere where there were no trees.

  7. I love trees. The ones around our garden are full of nesting birds and pigeons.

    God bless.

  8. Hi Denise,
    Hope you are feeling better, these summer colds can really lay you low.
    I love trees, big old trees, what have they seen, what stories could they tell.
    All the best, John

  9. Certainly miracles of nature and thankfully the forests in France are so well looked after they are growing rather than getting smaller. Have a good weekend Diane.

I thank you for taking the time to leave a comment. I enjoy reading them very much and always try to return a visit. As I do monitor comments it may take a while for them to appear, even quite late depending on what is going on and how much time I am able to spend on the computer.

Also, there are times when I delete by mistake, so if something you have written to me is gone, it's usually because my fingers have pushed the wrong button!
