This week my wandering about the garden I was looking up a lot. Looking up for that woodpecker, where is he? Looking up at the noisy agitated squirrel fighting with the crows, I think the crows took the peanuts that Charlie was carrying. Looking up at my trees & I noticed the healing of old wounds. Several winters ago, just 3 days before Christmas, (4 years this December coming), we had a major icy storm that not only took out the power for several days & for others for several weeks. But the ice was several inches thick on everything & the weight of the ice snapped & broke many branches. Every time I look at the wounds of our trees I marvel at how hardy they have been & quickly recovered & continue to grow & provide us with lots of summer shade & home for squirrels & birds. Thank you Mother Nature ...

Advice from a tree; stand tall & proud; ground yourself with the earth; be content with your natural beauty; go out on a limb; drink plenty of water; enjoy your roots; enjoy the view. I. Shamir
