Autumn must be the best month to appreciate the palette of glorious colours that the trees offer us.

I can't quite fathom the look on the face of this one...

Glorious colours in the park: green, yellow, gold, red, russet, orange, brown, or bare grey and black branches for those trees which have already lost all their leaves for this year.



I wonder where all the birds who haven't migrated find shelter now. I suppose they huddle together in crannies and under roofs and spend more time looking for food. Not everyone has a garden and can put food out for them, though public gardens and parks sometimes think to do this. It must be tough to be a little bird here during the Winter.

[image no longer available]

“Most Christmas trees are already green, but this environmentally friendly holiday display in Sydney takes the concept to a new level: It’s made of bicycles that were destined for the recycling yard.
The bicycle tree, dubbed the “Tree-Cycle,” is made of 100 old bikes donated by a local recycling company. The bike frames were spray-painted tree green, while the tires were given a multi-colored makeover to make them look like holiday lights.
And if you thought you spent a lot of time putting up your tree, consider this: It took eight weeks to build the 23-foot-tall Tree-Cycle, which is on display at The Rocks, one of the city’s prime tourist and shopping districts.
Even the “star” at the top of the tree is made of bicycle parts — look closely, and you’ll see it’s really just a series of front forks and tires sticking out in each direction.
It’s at least the third year in a row that the Rocks has featured a tree made of recycled or recyclable objects.
Last year’s Christmas centerpiece was made of bottles, while the 2008 effort was a tree-shaped pile of chairs.”

The tree that was not dead



People pass and see only a dead tree
they walk away slowly along the shore
see not that there is life yet within me
I wait and I hope, yearn for so much more.

The waves are closer, they whisper and call
caress the wood of my branch like a hand
'Come into our arms, just let yourself fall'
and far they bear me to a distant land.

For all that is dead, is really not so
look differently and see it anew
For all death is life though you may not know
just changed and transformed into something new.

The wind deposited a seed in a cold empty spot
where only ragged weeds survived, it was their sorry lot,
but in their midst the tiny seed into a great tree grew,
sturdy and strong it's branches were and leaves as soft as dew.
Passing birds migrating were tempted by its shady perch,
their singing was more beautiful than choir in a church.
Attracted by the chorus, other creatures came along,
made it their home and now it's full of happiness and song.

very happy

Darker much earlier in the evenings now and there's a thick carpet of fallen leaves all over the path, smulchy with the rain we've had lately. I don't much like walking on top of that, it's slippery and there's always the risk of a dog having left a little evidence of it's passage hidden underneath, so if you step on that you're good for a difficult shoe cleaning session (some owners "forget" to pick up dejections).

But the colours are gorgeous when the fallen leaves are fresh, and children love kicking their way through when the leaves are dry and fly all over the place.

I pity the birds whose roosting trees have branches now almost bare, having to find new homes. Thankfully there are plenty of cubby holes in the walls of buildings where they can take shelter.

Black clouds looming, but the wind is driving them away North at speed so I don't think they'll dare rain on us today, looks like they're off to rain on someone else instead and give us a breather and decent weather for the weekend.

happyheart

Yes ... those black clouds are visiting over London today.  There's a dark and dismal hue engulfing the atmosphere here today, mirrored on the faces and hunched stature of people I see trudging past my window.

Candlelight, you had me laughing there, got tears in my eyes.  lol

I thought the word was strange myself so looked it up in the dictionary and realized it wasn't right. But the only alternatives I could think of were too gross to write on this lovely forum.

Still giggling.  gigle

Dejection is also a fancy word for the solid excretory product your bowels release, or in other words: poop. Regardless of which definition you're using, it's safe to say that when it comes to your well-being, dejection is just not something you want to hang onto.

The winds have been blowing with such strength the last couple of weeks that only the hardiest of leaves managed to hang on to their branches, most have already fallen to the ground. The trees look bare and forlorn but they'll be budding again before we know it.
Many mornings are foggy and damp lately, and the birds are very quiet (except the pigeons), there's a cloak of lethargy over everyone.

Cities should plant more trees

Post by Stardust on Sat 20 May 2017, 7:21 pm

Cities should plant more trees, because more than 3 million people die annually from air pollution but planting trees can help lower that number by purifying the air.
