Trees in Spring.

May 30, 2011

While I was walking in a suburban park recently, I was struck by all of the trees that were flowering and bearing fruit.  It’s easier to notice flowering plants and nesting birds, but the trees are doing their thing to propagate future generations as well this season.

We tend to think of trees as just leaves, branches and a trunk.  In the spring, look for other features on them as well.  Here are some of the things you may see.

    Trees are much more than just leaves, branches and trunks– they are the lungs of our planet. But, few people seem to be aware. They just take things like oxygen and water for granted.

    Beautifully captured leaf photos. Indeed, we take trees and leaves for granted so often.

    Thanks for reminding us of their beauty and use!

      For years I never really *looked* at a tree. It’s amazing what we see when we truly look. There’s a lot more there than we realize!

    I’ve come to similar thoughts due to my new (and first) digital camera. It allows me the reveal details, colours and forms which remain mostly invisible or at least unnoticed to the naked eye. A new world can be discovered within one’s closest environment.

    There’s no doubt that having a camera in your hand makes you look at things carefully.

    Hi. I thought I’d pretend it was spring again and visit one of your earlier posts. I like the photo of the pine (#105). The red scale next to each ‘candle’ adds a pop of color to the photo. Jane
