The Hidden Life of Trees is a book that you must get your hands on. I was gifted this unique book by my friend Suhana last year, and I in turn gifted it to my 22 year-old on her birthday, and recently a dear blogger friend. This marvellous book explores how scientific research reveals the extraordinary world of forests and how trees communicate with and care for each other.
The book illustrates how trees are like human families: tree parents live together with their children, communicate with them, support them as they grow, share nutrients with those sick or struggling, and even warn each other of any impending danger.

I am yet to read the Hidden Life of Trees, I must admit. I will, I know in good time, as I am as fascinated by trees as as much as I am with other flora and fauna. And sometimes I feel I am a tree; one who wishes to scatter the goodness far and wide.
The Coming Months
Have a wonderful, safe rest of the week dear friends in blogosphere.
I wish you good times ahead as the festive season approaches.
As we approach the last quarter of this year, I intend to make #WordlessWednesday #WednesdayWisdom an alternate week linky party. I’m sure all of you will have plans for the upcoming festive season. Plans to make it special. We all have had a rough year and we so deserve some happier times ahead.
I have some plans too, apart from the festivities and hope to see it through during this time while #WW becomes an alternate week link up.
But who knows if I miss the weekly blog hop too much I may just return in November. But for now Que sera sera! 🙂 <3
Love, light, laughter and goodness.
