The Nesting Tree
Taking another tea walk and discovering this gem was a delight. A full sized nest in a tree that has it’s own character was found walking with my brother on the property during our morning tea/coffee walk. We take a jaunt together and talk about life givings daily, and coming upon this seemed perfect in our discussions of the morn. It seems like nature is our element to connect to life and he has come upon quite a few abandoned nests. I am getting a little collection from the trees which were fire burned a few years ago and since been abandoned. Some still smell of smoke. This one seems to be giving some life still and we appreciate the size of it. Most are small hummingbird nests. This one is quite larger and is mud packed with larger twigs.
The inside, or rather outside, the tree’s trunk shows it’s unusual character. Although not a large tree compared to the surrounding oaks, the tree holds the nest as if it owned the land in whole. I am not sure whether disease had a part in the tree’s look, but I do love the way nature has it’s own course on our plants. To me, it almost looks as if a stake is embedded in it from the past. Maybe?
Tea walks have become a daily zen. I enjoy discovering this and that’s. Take a discovery walk and listen to what you see. Have fun. Enjoy the walk. Get inspired.
Thanks for stopping in. Til next time…
