Today I had a great bike ride between showers. I felt really lucky when the sun broke through the clouds.
I wrote these lines as a tribute to nature:
When you stumble, you will find their fruits,
you’ll play hide and seek under them,
and you’ll climb in them.
You’ll visit them with your first loved one,
and you will walk under them with your family.
They supply the animals with food.
They tell you all about the seasons.
They give you shelter on a rainy day,
and they protect you from the sun on a hot summer day.
They are trees!
They provide joy, happiness, warmth and food.
They still breathe for us –
He who plants a tree, plants a hope. ~ Lucy Larcom
The last few days’ weather reminds me of Norway. Lots and lots of rain and suddenly a sparkling clear blue sky.
A fantastic weather if you’re dressed for it 😊
Here is a picture of an old Hawthorn against a blue sky.
