Thursday Tree Love: New Life


Sometimes it seems like things are in ruins. But life has a way of surprising us. Trust the timing.

This photo was taken by my amazing daughter, Ayla. It’s a young cypress growing from a stump at a nature preserve here in North Carolina.

  2. That Cypress is a survivor!!! I hope it grows to be a big tree!

  3. Beautiful and emotional photo. This is what mother trees do, nourish the young ones.
    Normally through connected roots, this is so special.


  4. Was the original a cypress?

  5. Life continues to grow no matter the environment. Lovely photography by your daughter 🙂

  7. Thank you for sharing!!.. nature keeps providing us humans with a lesson we can all learn… “Nobody can go back and start a new beginning, but anyone can start today and make a new ending.” ( Maria Robinson )… 🙂

    Until we meet again..
    May your day be touched
    by a bit of Irish luck,
    Brightened by a song
    in your heart,
    And warmed by the smiles
    of people you love.
    (Irish Saying)

  8. That’s a beautiful scene, JoAnna. I think I could sit there a while.

    • I’m glad you like it, Dan. I could sit there a while, too, as long as I have mosquito repellant. They’re especially abundant near the water this time of year. I guess that’s what’s so nice about photos! 🙂

  9. Wow! That’s so lovely. Life definitely has a way of surprising us! Beautiful click by Ayla. 🙂
