VJ’s Weekly Challenge: trees

Did you now that trees are community oriented, and that they can alter their chemistry to benefit their social families? I’ve been reading the Hidden Life of Trees by Peter Wohlleben, and recently viewed a Nature of Things episode on the same subject.

Seems trees have much to teach us.

This week I challenge you to spend some time communing with this incredible life form. You might just come away with an insight or two. Do, of course, share.

To participate, create a post – poetry, prose, photography, art, music, or other – and link back here. Or leave a comment/ link below.

Looking forward to your responses.

Update: See the link in the comments (from Sgeoil) for another excellent documentary on trees.

Permission to write, paint, and imagine are the gifts I gave myself when chronic illness hit - a fair exchange: being for doing. Relevance is an attitude. Humour essential.

      1. I don’t know what to say. They show up in my feed. It won’t be an issue soon, as I’ve decided to make some changes. Health is acting up and I’m feeling the need for a break. I know that you understand that.

  1. I think I saw the same documentary, V. J. So enlightening on intertree communication! Talking to your plants and hugging a tree may be valuable in connecting to these sentient life forms. πŸ™‚
