Speeches with the Skies & Trees: #WordlessWednesday #WednesdayWisdom

Speeches with the Skies & Trees: #WordlessWednesday #WednesdayWisdom


“Trees do not preach learning and precepts. They preach, undeterred by particulars, the ancient law of life.”― Herman Hesse

One of the pretty Gulmohars (Royal Poincinas) in our hood.


“One touch of nature makes the whole world kin.”
― William Shakespeare

Empty yet whole. The spray painted skies.


“Where flowers bloom so does hope.” – Lady Bird Johnson

That bewitching Gulmohar sprawls against my friends terrace balcony, nodding and spreading smiles.


“Love the trees until their leaves fall off, then encourage them to try again next year.” ― Chad Sugg

Re-wilding, Rebuilding.


“Only from the heart can you touch the sky.” – Rumi

Lush, layered and lucid.


“Trees are poems that the earth writes upon the sky.” ― Kahlil Gibran

Dance with the Gulmohars Skies

  1. 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 ……..

    1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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!

    1. Dear Parul
      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. 🙂

  4. “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.
    Beautiful photos.
    I wish you serene days, dear Natasha! Hugs! <3

    1. Oh yes, they are our lungs and we so wholeheartedly need to support them flourish. 🙂

      Thanks dear Diana. Have a relaxing weekend too. <3

  5. 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.

  6. 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!

  7. 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

    1. 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!

  8. “The trees are God’s great alphabet:
    With them He writes in shining green
    Across the world His thoughts serene.”
    ~Leonora Speyer

    Love all the quotes especially Kahlil Gibran’s. He’s my all-time favourite poet!

    Happy Weds, Natasha!

    1. 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

  9. 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!

    1. 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.

  10. The sky and the trees wash our eyes and souls of the bitterness of these days. Thanks for sharing!
    Stay safe, Natasha!

  11. 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

    1. 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

  12. 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.

    1. 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.

  13. 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.
