A thrilling tree-hug this morning. And did I enjoy it!
The view looking up from my sturdy tree-arm-perch.
It was like getting a ride on a friendly tree-llama.
An intricately patterned tree-angel caught my attention but was shy revealing her face to me.
While up higher this deeply textured tree-overseer was not being shy about his presence in the woods. Message: You are an intricate being in an intricate world. Take a step out of your comfort zone. Welcome a new perspective.
Extras: A yellow poplar leaf.
This was a tree we saw earlier in the walk. The mushrooms are a sign that the tree is not healthy. This amazing display of fungi on the tree was beautiful and a little sad. The dying and dead trees provide other living things, even trees in its own family, nutrients and opportunities for growth. The forest truly teaches important lessons.
