Trees

Gled recently made reference to an Oak tree on his blog, which got me thinking about trees. That happens a lot with me...something "triggers" me and I go careening off track into a whole new thing. One minute I'm looking at blogs, the next I'm sitting cross legged on the floor, rifling through tree pictures (God help me if a shiny object catches my attention at this point!!! (ADD?)

Anyhow, I've noticed lately that some of my favorite pictures all include trees so, due to a lack of material (translate: "boring life"), here are some of them:










This one is the latest...I heard the wind suddenly pick up the other day and when I looked out the window it was a blossom shower!! This picture didn't really capture it...right before I snapped this the entire sky was pink (yes, another missed shot!). Anyhow, it was gorgeous!

**UPDATE: Have you ever thought you were getting some great shots until you go look at someone else's and they're AMAZING and suddenly yours look extremely drab and boring? That just happened.....go here and have a look at these. WOW. tc...I think you, in particular, will really LOVE these photos - a lot of flowers/cats.

(I'm gonna' try harder.)

Those are some incredible tree pictures. Who doesn't like trees? Lol on the shiny object catching your eye and suddenly you're off on a new tangent. That is so me. I'm going to go check out those pictures you talked about right now.

Those are amazing. Even that stupid picture of the peppermint patty looks amazing. I love how she gets all the droplets to show up so clearly on the flowers. If it ever stops raining I want to go outside and try and take some pictures of bubbles. I thought the bubble pictures were pretty cool.

Deb - I absolutely adored your comment on my site. Yup..Linda Blair just about summed me up yesterday. But You put it so eloquently! Made me seriously laugh. Do you watch 'Heroes'? Dont know if you have it on over there but there was a comment made about 'Nikki' in one of todays GB papers. It said (about her alter ego) 'sometimes loving and caring, other times foul-tempered and aggressive. Is this really a super-power? Or just like every woman you've ever met?' Offended? hell yeah! But do i agree?? At pmt time? Hell yeah! If only men had an insight? I'm yet to figure out how to give it to them!

And your tree shots. Lovely. Really lovely. I have a thing about trees also. Think its inbuilt in us all to respect our elders!

respect our "elders", what about the oak, ash, cherry etc etc why single out the elder? :)

I love the third one. The orange and blue is gorgeous! The petals flying through the air looks so nifty. I can imagine what it would be like caught in the middle of that Deb

Is there anything more comforting than a tree? Okay there probably is, but trees have my heart and you took some great photos.

I've noticed Eva taking supreme closeups as well, and that must be why her pictures are great whilst mine suck - I try to get everything into one shot.

Charlie...glad you got a chuckle. I've mellowed out a lot, but it can be rough!

aka...I'm with you on that.

Mel...that third one I was sitting at my computer at sundown and noticed that the sky was gorgeous, so I took the pic. Funny thing was Linds was at a sleepover in Surrey and the next day she commented on the beautiful sunset/sky too.

Barbara...I think I'm a crammer too Barb. I'm going to try Eva's technique and get up close and personal.

Trees are good. ;-)

Spent most of the day yesterday planting more. Forty years from now, somebody's going to enjoy this place.

b...that's my favorite too. I was bike riding at sunset and, as the sun went down, it just seemed to illuminate that tree and it really stood out. I pulleed my bike over on the side of the road and snapped it.

w/n...ha, that's funny - I remember my Dad doing and saying the same thing at our place when I was young.

There is an oak tree growing in someone's back garden nr me. Which is pretty incredible as it's a tiny garden & a huge tree...

I love the cherry blossoms. They are meant to symbolize life's passing nature...

Finally I opened a video blog (& it is properly open) the url is

but all that's there so far is a giant wasp. (Not the clip I posted on my other one before. This is ONE wasp.)
