Tree Tuesday Forks Over the Day

in #treetuesday9 months ago (edited)


I never want to waste a moment of the season, so short and sweet they are. I inhale it in one smell, the near ripeness of the pine, pushing out pinecones for the next generation to come. Exposed and unadorned, nature reveals her beauty.

The light streams down, filtered by the branches, making play of the light and the shadows.

Today is #TreeTuesday initiated by @Old-Guy-Photos. Let's see some of those amazing tree posts!

What a glorious way to close out the month! In the heat of the moment in the beginning and the wonder of that cooling-off period, still warm, but no sweltering involved. Oh, yes! It was time well spent, rejuvenating the soul, my soul…. Getting ready for the next best place, looking down the telescope of fall. We are not there and not nearly ready, but, it will inevitably be here before we know it.

Oh, summer! Lest I forget, I would like to thank you for all the joy it has brought to my heart. And of course, you too! Yes, you… and you… and you.

Royal Naval Dockyard, on the west end of Bermuda.

Bermuda Clocktower Mall. Located at the Royal Naval Dockyard, it's hard to miss this impressive building with its twin clock towers. The two towers on the two sides of the building are 100-foot high, one having a clock that shows the real time and the other with a clock that shows the time of the high tide.

To be fair, it is surrounded by beautiful palms... Seriously! It is #TreeTuesday!Look hard!

Helicopter seeds turn colors and won't drop until the Spring. The term was coined because of the way the seeds spiral down to earth as they fall from the tree. In the botanical world, they are known as samaras. I believe this is an Elm Tree, bases on the shape of the leaves. Feel free to correct me if I am wrong. It has been interesting to watch the change in the trees from Spring to the upcoming fall, where most of them will take a winters rest.



Is there anything more beautiful looking than overnight rain? It washes over the landscape, giving it a refreshing, clean look. Then the sun comes out, air drying it. Life is good. Admit it.

Wherever you go, whatever you do, don't forget to see all that Mother Nature offers you. Beauty for nothing and the chicks are free. I heard that somewhere. When they throw in a dude or two, I'll be collecting.

You heard it here first

As always, you know there have to be flowers. Always and forever to color my world. As only @Kalamandra can do. One of these days covers the #ColorChallenge for orange, but, not today. Today would be yellow. Excuse the out of order coloring for the day. I just couldn't let these pass me by this morning.

What a wonderful world.
What a wonderful life.

A little bit of happy to make our day... give a listen to the music!

One last tree or piece of tree. Nature is so amazing, I just can't get enough of her. And just to keep life going in the right direction, don't forget to look up! You never know what you missing

And just like that, these musings are done. I want to thank @old-guy-photos and @Kalamandra for hosting these challenges and just so you know, although much sun and shine were used up today, I can guarantee that there is still a little left in my heart. Have a most fabulous day! And keep on Forking!

Thank you for visiting my post 💖 Because of you, I come back to post, again and again. Keep it classy, people. Kindness counts. Wherever you go, whatever you do.

I always post this poem down at the bottom of my posts. It is one that has become so near and dear to my heart. I only post the most famous part of it, but, wanted to post it in its entirety today.

they set my aunts house on fire
i cried the way women on tv do
folding at the middle
like a five pound note.
i called the boy who use to love me
tried to ‘okay’ my voice
i said hello
he said warsan, what’s wrong, what’s happened?

i’ve been praying,
and these are what my prayers look like;
dear god
i come from two countries
one is thirsty
the other is on fire
both need water.

later that night
i held an atlas in my lap
ran my fingers across the whole world
and whispered,
"where does it hurt?"
it answered,

"everywhere"
"everywhere"
"everywhere"

warsan shire

Children choirs always make a day wonderful...

Positive notes found in nature, cones or helicopter rides they keep going...

Hardfork, wonder who came up with this crazy detail, did it originate from fork U, fork-off or some other cursing when things go wrong. We sit on the edges feeling the side effect, ripple on the water at the outer edge. Have a great day, keep smiling....

Oh, yes! The helicopters never cease, just change color. The beauty and the feelgood I am left with after listening to a children's choir is priceless.

Haha! I have to wonder where the words came from, but your thoughts on it have passed through m brain, although usually a fork comes off it (think weku) and it is a "fork" in the road to change direction.

Oh, smiling is all you can do.

Thanks for stopping by!

!tip

LOL thinking back; if a leaned over a table instead of asking for something to be passed to you at my Gran's house, you got a hard fork in the hand... Oh dear that would be considered child abuse today!

Thanks for putting up a TT post. Your images are always so spot on. Dont rule out summer just yet. It has come back here in full force today.

Mark Knopfler was just a pure and simple liar when he wrote that song. From my experience the chicks are never, ever free. I say the Oak Ridge Boys were much closer to the truth with the lyric, "Sometimes the pleasure ain't worth the strain." lol.

I much enjoyed the video. Looks best in the post, in my opinion.

Haha! You Hillbilly Hungarian, of course, those Blue Ridge Boys made more sense to you. And, of course, I meant the Oak Ridge Boys LOL

I much enjoyed the video. Looks best in the post, in my opinion.

I'm not sure what you meant.

Oh, summer is still here. For a bit longer. Maybe late October? We will see. Thanks for stopping by and Tree Tuesday is always a pleasure.

Omg having it play in the post instead of having to follow just a link like you had it originally. Are you really @dswigle? Or have you hired someone to answer comments for you! Good Gawd you crack me up!

The overnight rain indeed looks refreshing! It's so nice to see those water drops again. 😍

Hehehe. Yes, I'll keep "forking." 😜

Well as long as you keep forking, I'm happy. LOL it's that wondrous time of season where there is usually do on everything when you wake up. It's Quickly dashed by the Sun as it dries it up in the morning Heat. Such a beautiful time of year. I hope all is well with you and yours.

As always, I wish you a most wonderful day.

!tip

Oh! That's very interesting.. Wonderful time of the year. Is it summer?

It is still summer, although we are nearing the end of the very hot weather. I am in the Washington, DC area, so I believe we are opposite seasons.

In the Philippines, they say that we only have two seasons: HOT and HOTTER! 😂😁 So, I really don't know which "opposite season" you are referring to. Hahahaha! 😁😂

Hahaha! That is true!!! How could I forget that one!!!

Have you been to the Philippines, Denise? 😊

Yes! Two short times to Luzon and once to Manila. It was in the early 90's.

It certainly looks like everything was washed clean by the rain, those pine cones are such a vibrant green, too gorgeous!
We're looking forward to spring here, can already see new life in the garden!
Your posts are always so uplifting:)

Isn't spring the best??? Oh, after a brief moment or three of winter, spring sneaks in and makes life so beautiful!

Life in the garden is where it all begins, this fantasy of wonderful that encapsulates my life.

Ahhhh! I can feel it from here!

Thanks so much for stopping by and saying hello. It is going to be a good day!! 💖

Thank you for the tip Denise, hope your day is going well, I had a lovely one on this side of the world;)

Test comment to see if the forking fork is done

I know, right??? I am so forked off right now!!!

!tip Yep! It's all working!

At least it is all working, and activity seems to be like it was before hand but I guess time will tell the full impact of this

Well, my activity is waaay down. It is late now and there is no making up for some of the things I had.

Le sigh.

Well, tomorrow can be a better day. BTW Partiko was posting most of the time. :)

I dont think I have ever used Partiko I must check it out sometime but for now sticking with what I know I guess I am getting change adverse, as it happened I dont think it slowed me down much today I was busy at work at the time it was down for the most part

I was busy up until a few ago, so the timing was excellent. I don't use Partiko. I just happen to know it was up.

I stick to a small few. :)

I use a few myself esteem for posting my morning shot as it works nicely on my phone and also they give an upvote, Actifit for my steps, Steempeak for most other things thats my go to app for most everything else

glad the timing of it went well for you as well, I was pleasantly surprised how quick it was back up and running

Shhhhh! There are still things that don't work. I cannot transfer money. Just tiny things that could break it all over again.

I use busy and steemit. Steampeak shut me out as did Esteem when I first began and they said I already signed up for an account. Possibly did, but, someday soon, I should try to straighten that out.

Love those flowers @dswigle! I hope you had time to recharge this weekend :) Blue skies all around us, with an overnight rain everything is always so fresh! A renewal of everything. We're certainly getting more than our share of rain right now, dodging thunderstorms has been our main focus, lol Cheers to a great week!

Well, be careful!!! You saw that lightning strike at the PGA! We always think those things won't happen -until they do! I love the freshness of a little water, although flooding proportions are a little different! LOL

Thank you for always such kind and wonderful words. You are such a lovely soul. Love to the birdhouse!

Thank you and yes!! The Bermuda Triangle is very famous for the treacherous rocks they have. I have sailed there many times. It is a beautiful island in the middle of nowhere.

Your summer seems to passes so fast...

Glorious summer nature shots

Resteemed

Thank you! It is so hard to not get good shots in the summer because everything is so beautiful! The season has been kind until the real heat set in, but, the temperatures here are kind and gentle to nature.

Thanks for stopping by and saying hello and always leaving some kind words behind.

As always, have a glorious day!

!tip

You're welcome. I always enjoy your photos and poetry.

"Kind" and "gentle" are NOT words anyone would apply to our sweltering summers here. LOL 🥵

Thanks for the tip!

Having lived in North Carolina for about a year and enjoying their summer months, and honestly say that you are so right!

We'll start cooling down in time for Halloween. 🎃

That is when our summer ends. Almost exactly coinciding with Halloween Night. That is our first taste of the autumn chill.

Freaky. :)

Our first chill isn't until around Thanksgiving. I've seen plenty of Halloweens with temps in the 80s.

I love these photos! The colours are so rich - the green of the pine cones and the deep orange of the flower petals. And that lovely happy song :)

and the other with a clock that shows the time of the high tide.

This is an important moment for residents, a lot depends on it :)

Absolutely!! I grew up on the coast of Connecticut where there were lots of fishermen. We lived and breathed by the tides!

Tides are the breath of the earth itself, the breath of life :-)
