Flower of the day: October 7, 2020

SF Botanical Garden, Walnut tree

“To be without trees would, in the most literal way, to be without our roots.”

― Richard Mabey

San Diego Safari Zoo in the Aviary exhibit
Tree at a San Jose park; kids think it looks like a Minecraft trunk. Everything is Minecraft these days.

Thanks Cee for hosting this flower challenge!

Welcome to my blog! My name is Esther and I'm so happy you are here. I'm an avid nature photographer and a daydreaming thinker. My posts revolve around photos of nature's beauty, homeschooling adventures with my 2 kids, sporadic reflections on my child's heart condition, Bible reading reflections, gardening feats, and other mish mash things. Hopefully you'll leave encouraged, pensive, or smiling at the simple things of life. Thank you for stopping by and hope you'll find some interesting posts to read!

    1. Thank you Linda! The first tree is a walnut tree…it reminded me of the post you did about the walnut and I was so sure this tree picture had a walnut on it. Could not find any. But isn’t the tree gorgeous?
      The multicolored bark is unique looking. No two tree is alike!

      1. It is gorgeous Esther and after I learned that green “lime-looking” object was from a walnut tree, I’ve been paying more attention to walnut trees now. I Googled images and I can say that walnut trees are not in the Park as far as I can tell, so the squirrels must be dragging them from trees in the neighborhood for safekeeping in their nests. They are industrious critters. The bark is unique looking and caught my eye right away! Unique just like people and snowflakes!


    1. Thank you! So true that we see what we want. I wouldn’t have made that association, but if you see the world through minecraft lens, I guess that’s what you see.
      I appreciate you stopping you and for your comment. Hope you are well and you had a good weekend. 🙂
