Tree of Life


Tree of Life, originally uploaded by escher (spring is here).

It's late and it's time to relax so I can only spend a little time recapping my last few weeks and tell you about things I've never seen before...

I saw a bat flying and feeding in broad daylight... Never seen that before...

I saw an Apache Gunship flying only a few feet above the trees in Lancaster... Never seen that before...

I saw a ewe give birth to two lambs... Never seen that before...

Warm sunshine on Easter bank holiday... Never, ever seen that before...

It's really warm and it feels like summer rather than spring.

Although the oak leaves are only just appearing and there are Bluebells, Wood Sorrel and Primroses carpeting the woodland floor everything else feels much farther on. The birds are singing like its mid June and the weeds are growing like they know it is all they have to do.

Finally everything grows and my pallette is enriched once again.

Oh boy, I love the spring. There is nothing quite like it...

Some of these things I haven't seen before either, but I have now seen your lovely tree of life.

is there a link with Terrence Malick?

Thanks Jennifer, life is full of surprises, long may it continue.

Hi Emmanuel, no any connection is purely coincidental. I didn't recognise the name and had to look it up, I am familiar with his films but I hadn't heard that one with that title was coming out this year.
