Photo ...

I took this shot last week, put the file aside, then opened it up today not remembering where the file had come from. My first impression was “what the heck is all this, some kind of blood cells or bacteria?” But no, it’s just spring-time in New Jersey, a detail shot of a tree in bloom. You can notice something about mother nature; when she wants to get something going, she uses crude devices (who knows how many of these blossoms are going to make it into some kind of fruit, and from there, find some fertile soil where a new tree could take root; it’s a very inexact, hit-or-mostly miss process, no environmental scanning and intelligent targeting behind it). But she takes a lot of shots. And somehow, her world keeps on going.

So far, anyway . . .

  1. Jim, I love the picture! And I can’t believe this picture was taken last week when, around here, the trees have barely started to push out the tips of some baby leaves. But we may get leaves sooner rather than later. Last night I noticed the grape hyacinths had no flowers; today, when the temperature has gone up into the low 70s, the flowers are completely in bloom.

    The blossoms in your picture are beautiful; what kind of tree is this?

    Trees interest me; they have an ability to grow no matter what and to endure, it seems. I’ve noticed around here that the area where I live used to be, literally, a thick forest with many, many trees. (There is still one area across the street that has been preserved.) Every single summer I notice in the grass small trees popping up, cut down by the landscapers. There is one tree that has grown up through the roots of a decorative bush that simply gets trimmed. That tree is amazingly large already. Some day I’m sure it will simply push the bush away and continue growing.

    You are right: When Mother Nature wants what she wants, she gets it. MCS
