A Golden Grove:
“All that is gold does not glitter,
Not all those who wander are lost;
The old that is strong does not wither,
Deep roots are not reached by the frost.
From the ashes a fire shall be woken,
A light from the shadows shall spring;
Renewed shall be blade that was broken,
The crownless again shall be king.”
J.R.R. Tolkien, The Fellowship of the Ring
"Look at the earth crowded with growth, new and old bursting from their strong roots hidden in the silent, live ground, each seed according to its own kind... each one knowing what to do, each one demanding its own rights on the earth... So, artist, you too from the deeps of your soul... let your roots creep forth, gaining strength." Emily Carr
Sometimes I think trees know me better than any one person.....
Are we all still rooted in the past......not able to move forward....
Yes, thank god that trees are not chatty, what a relief to go to the forest or the country grove.....or Butchart Gardens.
Imagine like John Lennon and be a dreamer....perhaps we all could be one...
It is good to have deep roots but it always is the shallow parts that we show to each other...... here we are at Goldstream Park.

You may have noticed that the common theme was to be the letter "G" for ABC meme, I tried but strayed away from it as always.
Thank you to these memes for allowing bloggers to share their story. I may not remember to enter them all but I still list them for others and as this is the quick way for me to do it.

I list all the memes for the week now as I can only spend a short time on the computer. To continue reading posts you must click older post below or see the index at the top or the side or pick a popular post or label from the sidebar.
What do you think of the little posters I am making of my photos and putting on my random thoughts and mixed up words on them, should I continue on this path. Any comments.
