How often do we stop and marvel at the colours of the trees? If the trees could talk I’m sure they could tell us many stories. When I was a kid I used to like wading in the leaves of the trees. They used to come up to my ankles when they fell on the ground. When I was in school I used to press a piece of paper up against a leaf and rub with a crayon. This created the leaf pattern on the paper. We then hung them up in the school classroom. There is no mistaking it trees are beautiful!
In the fall they go red, orange, purple and brown. I think this is the most beautiful part of the year for trees. I heard down east Canada is fantastic with all the colours.
Trees are obviously very important to the earth too. Without trees there would be no us, no animals, no anything really. Oak trees live 100 or so years. If you want to live a long time, come back as an oak tree. I also heard some people believe they can actaully talk to the trees. If this is true what stories are they telling you?
We must be careful with how much we build on the land. More buildings equals less trees. I think some people reading this blog will think me as a tree hugger. But what if I am? Maybe I like to hug trees. Think if we never built civilization, how different would our planet look? It would probably be more pure.
Take a day out one day and just spend time with the trees. Maybe even climb one :-). Trees have been around for longer than we have and they’ll probably still be going after us. They are beautiful and fascinating, never forget how important they are!
