Revitalized after a walk through the wilderness

7 Comments

If you read my earlier post you know that the morning started a bit down due to the cutting down of the trees near my home. After a nice long walk in nature where I recorded a babbling brook on my iPhone, listened and watched birds at play flying from tree to tree, I began to feel happy again knowing that there is plenty of wildlife and trees quite close by.

When I saw the five trees merged as one I had to stop and take a photo. (see below) While admiring this stand of trees, I noticed there were several groupings of trees quite similar to this one however they were fused together in different areas along their trunks. Feeling grateful to be with these beautiful trees, I had to stop and give them a hug. We can gather so much energy from the trees I can’t figure out why others aren’t doing the same. They are givers of life, shade, protection. Each unique in its own special way. Walking in nature brings peace within that I wish could be shared with everyone.

The fifth tree is peeking through the branches. When I was a child we would visit my brother-in-law’s family camp and I was always impressed by the stand of cedars that had become one very large tree. When I purchased my first home, the first thing my husband and I did was dig up 4 Cedar trees from camp and planted them closely together in a circle in our yard. They grew together like those I remembered in my youth. Trees are something we plant knowing that we may never enjoy their full potential. It may be the next generation reaping the benefits. Many trees do not reach their peak in our own lifetime unless we live a very long life. If you want to enjoy the trees that you are planting, plant them early in your life so you can enjoy them.

Not sure what these are but they were quite beautiful

We came across these interesting plants. They were on a vine that had wrapped itself around a bush. When the sun peeked through the tree-line the little puffs resembled ice crystals. They were quite beautiful.

Once again, nature has revitalized me. I am in my happy place, content knowing that nature is only a short walk away. The trees in the adjoining yard have been felled but my landlord has not touched those in this yard. They should be safe for another year. I shall hug them again tomorrow to show my appreciation for the shade, protection from the wind the provide and for their natural beauty. Life is peaceful once again!

Love and Light,
Sandy

  1. Nature always leaves me in a better place than when I got there. It shouldn’t be too much to ask that we give back a little when we get back so much more in return. I believe the ‘puffs’ you found are called Old Man’s Beard. I found some the other day as well and loved the way they looked. Have fun and stay safe!

  2. Thank you for reading my blog. We both have a commonality with our love of nature. Thank you for providing a name for the puffs.

  3. Nature and walking is something very close to my heart. I have been a regular walker in the parks close to nature. It is such a refreshing activity and once we get tuned to it, there is a very good possibility of connecting our mind with the soul, inspiring our thinking and exploring our potency of imagination…just able to dedicate a hour everyday for an engagement with nature and doing so with the process of brisk walking, can make life and living better. It’s not the physical body that undergoes a change but the mind which gets activated and de-stress and in glory of nature it nurtures…

    Daily walk…a small step towards a big leap on our life’s journey. Ironically in today’s world we have knowingly or under self compulsion have moved away from nature and we have in the process endangered our life.

    Lovely post!!!
