Big ones, small ones, green ones, all ones!

Hi there. Nature lover here.

And in honor of that, I have decided to devote this post

to some treasured tree images…

The picture of the tree to the right is one of the best kinds:

any tree that resides near mountains.  😉

Long's Peak from Lower Beaver Meadows, RMNP

Dead tree full of character “living” in Rocky Mountain Nat’l Park

Awesome Oak tree in fall

This tree reminds me of the one in “The Jungle Book”  🙂

I think that I shall never see

A poem lovely as a tree.

A tree whose hungry mouth is pressed

Against the sweet earth’s flowing breast;

A tree that looks at God all day,

And lifts her leafy arms to pray;

A tree that may in summer wear

A nest of robins in her hair;

Upon whose bosom snow has lain;

Who intimately lives with rain.

Poems are made by fools like me,

But only God can make a tree.

Poem by Joyce Kilmer 1886-1918

Q: What kind of tree can fit into your hand?

A: A palm tree!

A shaggy palm tree on Camp Pendelton

Trees always capture my attention.

They stand imposing, resolute, and stately.

They can be cute or colorful or twisted.

A vibrant blue sky as a backdrop, no matter what the season, accentuates their beauty.

Believe it or not, all colors of the rainbow are represented in trees. (For example: Blue Spruce and Autumn purple Ash)   😉

Spring has sprung

Pink crab apple blooms

I saw this Redbud in a neighborhood and HAD to turn around and take a picture!

Sweet Summertime

Looking up and up…

I love dead trees, especially twisted ones, too.  🙂

Lilac bloom

A perfect lilac

Essence of Enchantment

Each lilac touches wayward hearts,
with deepest blue and velvet glow;
The daffodils sprout yellow wings,
reaching out to join the show.

Enchantment is with us every day,
its essence stirs yet calms our souls;
As God displays His natural wonders,
life-long gifts that will never grow old.

Poem excerpt by Frances E. McClelland

Advice from a Tree

Stand tall and proud, sink your roots into the earth. Be content with your natural beauty.

Go out on a limb.

Drink plenty of water, remember your roots, enjoy the view!

A visually warm spring day

Be like a tree!  🙂

Trees and horses

The Tree of Life

“To him who overcomes, I will give the right to eat from the Tree of Life, which is in the paradise of God.” ~ Revelation 2:7b

That wraps up my tree post. I’m glad I got to share some of my favorites with y’all. Go climb one, sit under a Weeping Willow and read a book, or just notice the majesty of trees more often. You’ll be glad you did.

I know it’s been a while since I’ve visited you. Life is busy. Too busy, isn’t it? Hopefully, we’ll talk soon. Take care.

Blessings and blooms,


Sunset Maple tree

This wonderful specimen is in our backyard
