messages from nature

Category: miscellaneous | Posted: Wed May 26, 2010 2:27 pm

this july 25th we will celebrate our ninth year in this house. although it's not the grandest of homes it is ours and we love it. our front porch is unique to the homes in our cul-de-sac and we have two rocking chairs on ours to sit out and take advantage of the nice spring evenings without being bothered by the mosquitoes too badly. For years i have been fascinated by the pine trees belonging to the neighbors across the street. I make no apologies for not being able to identify them by their latin names, i have a hard time using the english language correctly i will never master the latin required to identify plants its better for me to leave that up to the experts....but i believe these trees are trying to tell me something. To my left is a big honking pine tree, oh about 100 feet tall, and when the new cones start to take shape they look for all the world like CROSSES!!! I don't think these pictures do them justice but they really look like crosses!

i call this one the "jesus tree" ( photo / image / picture from tonya's Garden )I call this one the "jesus tree". To my right is another pine tree of roughly the same height. The difference between these two trees is the message i get from them...the tree on the right looks for all the world like it is flipping me off!!!!

i call this one the "evil tree" ( photo / image / picture from tonya's Garden )I'm sure there's a logical if not scientific explanation for the difference in the cone growth pattern for each of these trees but it's more fun for me to let my imagination run away. I happen to be both "apolitical" and "areligious" these are private matters that i prefer to keep in the confines of my bedroom, but sometimes i think these trees are trying to tell me something. Could it be that the "jesus tree" is trying to tell me that there is a higher being looking out for and maybe down on me? or is the "evil tree" flipping me the bird and yelling obsenities? either way the "jesus tree" makes me smile when i see it and the "evil tree"?? i smile at it too...while giving it my own one fingered salute...right back at you buddy!...tonya 05/26/10
