Nostalgia! These nice photos bring back fond memories of when we lived in Northwestern Ontario!
So glad to spark a memory!
I kind of feel as though this is a metaphor for how we need to stick together and lean into each other when adverse conditions try to pry us apart.
Yes and “stick together” we must! 😉
I love birch trees. We have many around here that look exactly like your photo with all the sticks on the ground. Never thought to take a photo of it. You have made me see the same view a different way and that’s a good thing!
Ah! Thanks for letting me know!! You made my day.
Love the image and the words. Not so many birch trees here but I do love the ancient presence of my big gum trees. I often wonder what tales these trees could tell us.
I wonder what tales the trees could tell too. Trees are some of my favorite beings.
I have an old tree in my paddock I call The Warrior Tree because it looks very battle scarred. It has been hit by lightening and has a big hollowed out area at the base. Sometimes kangaroos lie there to escape the heat of the day. I also imagine our indigenous people sheltering under that tree too,
Wow! What a marvelous and sacred place that Warrior Tree is and I love the name❣️
Thank you Catherine.
I always like photos of birch. thanks for this one.
your most welcome Allan
That’s one of my fovourite trees; so nice colors (above all in autumn); it does not hide the light of the sun.
I totally agree with your beautiful words, here: I…we…need to be really together, always, and above all when winter (soul winter) knoks and strikes…
knocks * sorry
