I talk to the trees ...

By Ericsamson
... and get some very strange looks ... and even stranger answers. 🥴

A bit of Sherwood Forest. The last of the unicorns disappeared from the scene only seconds before. Taken in the afternoon at what I think must have been 14.41 rather than 15.41 as stated in the EXIF. (This on the basis that I am notoriously slack about adjusting the time on cameras when we go from British Summertime to ........... British Dreary Wintertime or whatever it's called. I'm 93 for goodness sake!

Many thanks for the very understanding and generous responses to the nonsense with the pumpkin; you've all been very kind. G 🙂

I don't change the time on my cameras either. It's right for half the year, which seems reasonable enough to me...

Talking to trees is OK, if you've met before even a hug is alright.Smile

A lovely woodland scene with the autumn colours, and especially like the patches of sunlight highlighting different parts of the image. Well done, Graham.

I tried learning Tree, but found it too difficult a language to master, so stick to talking to the two plants whose languages I can speak - Corn-Cockle and ******* Toadflax. As you are probably aware, Corn-Cockle is very similar to Swamp Lousewort, so I may well have a go at learning that, too.

(For the benefit of the Doubting Thomas's out there, those are real flower names...)

Beautiful colours and light, Graham and hey!
If it's ok for Clint Eastwood to talk to the tree's, then it's ok for you. Wink
