Trees are great for the environment; they absorb carbon dioxide and release oxygen back into the air. Arborists’ main job is making sure trees stay healthy and treating them when they become damaged.
Count me in too. I keep dreaming of a cosy home surrounded by nature and hills 😀
Wonderful and thoughtful quotes! I especially like the perspective in the first photo where the trees are the focus.
Thanks a lot Joanna. 🙂
Thank you for swinging by.
The photos took my breath away. I cannot explain the effect nature has on me ……… and the surroundings are so clean 🙂 Bonus joy!
The gulmohar flowers are adding so much color and vibrancy. We do not have many flowering trees near our place. Greenery yes but not the floral ones except the semul (Thank God)
……. and perfect quotes to go with them.
Fantastic post Natasha ……..
Nature has a ripple effect of boundless joy and love for me too.
I can live happily for the rest of my life surrounded in the pristine lap of nature, or in the mighty woods.
Thanks dear Monika.
Gulmohors are so so beautiful! Surprisingly its reds have a soothing effect in the summer heat!
Yes, the radiant reds add a dash of hope, even in the sweltering summers.
Much like Roohafzah, I guess. ha! Ha!
Wow, such beautiful pics you had shared of flowering Gulmohar.
Thanks for sharing such lovely quotes too.
The clear sky in the backdrop of red-flowered trees is a sight one can gaze for hours.
Never knew pistols are edible too.
True that. 🙂
These sights are what make for a treasure to cherish always.
I love these pictures. So beautiful and natural. Gulmohar trees are a favorite this side and so is that quote. My favorite!
Thanks for linking up with Thursday Tree Love too. Makes me happy, Natasha!
I’m glad you love Gulmohars too. I have many memories growing up surrounded by them. Picking up the fallen flowers, marvelling at their hues and even playing a little game wth the stamens.
More recently on my walks I discovered the pistils (the base of the flower) are tangy and edible too. Actually mum-in-law mentioned they are.
I believe this lovely tree comes with a host of medicinal properties too. 🙂
“Trees are poems that the earth writes upon the sky.” (K.G.) What more can I say? 🙂 Trees are also the lungs of the Earth. Without people it’s kind of sad.
I wish you serene days, dear Natasha! Hugs! <3
Oh yes, they are our lungs and we so wholeheartedly need to support them flourish. 🙂
Thanks dear Diana. Have a relaxing weekend too. <3
Thanks for posting for pictures that bring out freshness.
Pleasure all mine. They add freshness to my life. 🙂
Those are some gorgeous clicks of trees and skies, Natasha. Lovely quotes too.
Thanks dear Vinitha. Blessed to be living around them.
I love the vibrancy of the photographs. The beautiful red Gulmohar flowers and the happy spread of nature as it grows next to man-made concrete make the photos interesting.
Thanks Dipali for noticing 🙂
I’m still trying my hand at photography.
A pleasure to have you join us.
I’m glad I’m not alone in a love for trees! The fascinate me with their shapes and ability to grow just about anywhere.
It’s great to see you at ‘My Corner of the World’ this week!
Thanks dear Betty. Tress are our lifelines, and teach us so many lessons without saying a word. 🙂
Thank you for the invitation to come and participate. I always thought it was wordless and I’m so wordy, but I see I can still participate. I’ll put it on my list of linkups to join in the future. – Margy
Fabulous, Margy. Always welcome. 🙂
We are happy as long as their are pictures and we are big fans of travel pictures too. 🙂
And words describing the pictures add to the fun too!
Wonderful, Margy. 🙂 See you soon.
Beautiful. I love spring.
Thank you for joining the Wordless Wednesday Blog Hop.
Have a fabulous Wordless Wednesday. ♥
I love spring and fall. My favourite seasons.
Have a great week ahead, Sandee. <3
Absolutely beautiful! Both gorgeous and serene at once!!
Thank you Priya. Glad you liked them.
“The trees are God’s great alphabet:
With them He writes in shining green
Across the world His thoughts serene.”
Love all the quotes especially Kahlil Gibran’s. He’s my all-time favourite poet!
Happy Weds, Natasha!
Hi-five! to that Veronica. Mine too. His Prophet is my bedside “bible”. 🙂
Thanks for sharing another gem of a quote.
Happy Weds to you too. <3
We love the trees and all of the quotes, Natasha. The pictures are breathtakingClean Pawkisses for a Happy Wednesday. Stay Safe Healthy and Yourselfie
I saw this kind of tree only in photos and paintings. It is so beautiful, that a sketch will be perfect!
Thank you for the beauties you shared, dear Natasha!
Happy WW and all the best! Be safe!
Oh, yes Suzana. That will be great. Will you make one please? :)))
You take care and stay safe and lovely. Virtual hugs. <3
I love the Gulmohar trees! They are so bright and beautiful and can instantly cheer you up!
Much love <3
Totally so. I love all these trees that sprinkle their gorgeous blooms upon us this season.
I love the purple jacarandas too. Missed capturing them this season. Love how they carpet the ground and their wisp of fragrance rises in the air. 🙂
Big love, S. <3 Stay safe.
The sky and the trees wash our eyes and souls of the bitterness of these days. Thanks for sharing!
Stay safe, Natasha!
I’m so glad they do. Such beautiful blessings indeed.
Will do, you too Zina. 🙂
So, okay I’m gonna play dumb here (maybe), and ask what time of year is it by you? I’m loving the colors you have in these pics, but they sort of look like fall colors. I love reddish trees, bushes etc. My husband bought me the bushes last year, but they did not turn red as of yet, but I have been told that they won’t for a couple of years. aughhhhhh I’m know gardener that’s for sure. I did plant a tree about three yrs. ago and it just started to grow. I’m no good at this, but I am good at my vegetable garden which we are going to get started on tomorrow. Because of the weather we’re running just a little late. It’s been cold the last couple of days, but I’ll be taking pics so you can see. Woo Hoo! I can hardly wait. I love fresh tomatoes especially! YUM! I hope all is well with you my friend. Please stay healthy, happy, and safe! HUGS
Babes, Spring is almost over and we are moving into summers now.
Yeah trees just take time to bloom and fruit. We got to be patient along with them. Ha! ha!
I can’t wait to see pictures of your veggie garden. Mail them to me if you like Marie.
Alls well and blessed. Amen to that!
Big safe hugs. <3
Lovely (mostly) clear skies. Are these photos recent? We don’t have blue skies that often, but when we do, the sky is so blue and clear that it almost makes cuts in your eyes – in a good way. Nature is responding to our losses with love and beauty.
Yes, dear Alana this was taken the same morning I posted them. It’s summers here. And spring is on its way out. Sigh!
It’s mostly clear skies in the summers here. But thanks to the pandemic we have the most crystal clear skies I’ve ever seen in this city in my last 10 years.
Such a beautiful quote and beautiful pics. So lovely and peaceful. Thanks for sharing them. Thanks for hosting and I hope that you and your family are safe and healthy.
Thanks a bunch, Patrick. Take good care.
Blue skies, beautiful trees and meaningful words. Lovely!
Happy to know you liked them, Keith.
Have a good week ahead!
