Plant a tree for you and me

Thu May 2, 2019, 4:04 AM

Summary - document in works
Hi everyone! Bouncing Kieke 

A couple of days ago some of you received a rather unusual note from me. :ashamed:
At first I thought I might be crazy and I should not do it, but I still went for it :flirty:
On the list - people I like, some of them dear friends. :aww:
Tangerine Tree 
After sending a wave of notes, the feedback completely overwhelmed me
- I did not really know what to expect...
I sent the notes with a joyful feeling, full of hope,
and I got back very heartwarming answers, which moved me to tears...
Another beautiful moment which shows me how special our community here is...
Heart Tree 

I wish I would have sent more notes for some of you that I did not manage to reach out to,
but the amount of feedback took a lot of time, and I did not manage to get around for it.
If you see this journal and you like the idea, please consider it like a personal note to you.

 Flower Heart 

While my motivation is something which I prefer to keep one on one,
several friends suggested we should maybe have like an open community event.
Get Together 

I am not sure how,
but maybe you would enjoy looking around at others who liked the idea to plant something,
for somebody
somewhere, no matter how far,
a family member,
or a friend,
virtual or irl.
An act which benefits all of us around the world!

Cuddles: Apple Tree

Did you know that our watercooker makes a strong impact on our environment?

Spit Laugh

yep, stronger than you would guess...!

If every watercooker counts,
every plant also does!

in a pot on the window bench,
on a balcony or on a terrace;
in a garden,
or in the nature out there
(where it is allowed to plant)


Every single plant
BIG or small!

:wave: Hello dear friends, a few days ago I received a beautiful note from my friend :iconandorada: 
In her note she told me that her mother loved plants and asked me if I could plant something for her.
I thought the idea was spectacular! Of course I accepted immediately, it seems to me an act of love
so beautiful, so noble, it is a very beautiful gesture

its leaves, its fruits ... if you plant a tree I know that it will fill your soul with very beautiful feelings, I will also: D
The idea is easy: plant a tree in memory of our loved ones or just for others
and give all our love and care, is

Plant A Tree For You And MeHello to all my dear friends, at this start of hoping a beautiful Summer to all of us! 
Not a long time ago I received a very beautiful letter from my dear friend Andorada  
:iconandorada: and I read her diary with pleasure.  
I found it there such a beautiful idea  and it seems to me wonderful to try to plant a tree or a flower for someone you love.
All of us love someone who maybe is not longer with us or somebody who maybe is very far away ...
When I  say this,  I also think about the strong friendships that have been created in this wonderful space called dA. I know that many of us would like to meet in real life and give a real hug to each other with  love, but most of the time this is not possible and then this idea of Andorra is really special.:heart:
We always dedicate each other beautiful pictures and words, what if we will try to plant a little life in a

 Starstation Earth by werol 

Mother EarthThe arc of her spine
mimicked the gentle slopes of
the distant mountains.
   Beautiful WorldBorn free here on earth:
Huge herds in the world.
Wild and free - so live animals
In Gaia, Mother Earth.
Huge forests once on earth
Until the man was born.
Nature so green. Grazing on glade
Is a deer quite shy but close.
Rain over dry countries.
I see the awakening of nature.
Rainbow makes me dream
Peacefully after a hot dry night.
Fog over high mountains,
Waterfall – force of nature,
Silence … just a bird chirping
When the morning is awake.
Sun standing high in the sky
But when the night will soon be dark:
Dark blue is the sky then -
Red sunset.
I see the world with different eyes
As long as it still exists.
Because I am just a part of life
In a dying world untouched.
   LifeLife is the wind blowing through the trees,
Life is the sound of the buzzing bees,
Life is the smell of a summer day,
Life is amazing in every way.
Life is all there is to know,
Life is what makes flowers grow,
Life is important so don't forget,
Life is great so don't regret.

This morning its looks like a fairytale in Holland by Betuwefotograaf

Weeping WillowI feel the warmth of a summer day –
The sky so wonderful in blue,
The grass in saturated green.
Step by step
I come to meet you.
Along the way
So many thoughts,
So many words in my head.
The stony way becomes shorter
And I see you approaching.
To my left
The blue lake in which you are reflected.
I arrive!
I touch your leaves.
Weeping willow... Oh, weeping willow ... do you feel me?
Do you feel the scars burning me?
Please remove it!
I thank you!
Weeping willow... Oh, weeping willow... do you see me?
Do you see my silent tears?
Please take them away!
I thank you!
Weeping willow... Oh, weeping willow... do you understand me?
Do you recognize my courage?
Please support me!
I thank you!
You stand at the lake,
So quiet and calm –
For me it is a place so peaceful and wise.
You seem to be full of sorrow,
But this picture is an illusion.
Weeping willow... Oh, weeping willow...
You are my hold.
With you it never gets cold
In this world.
Your foliage hangs down sadly,
But it serves a
Speaking for the treesFrom the tree tops
I can see it all so clearly
The ripples fading further
a tip-toe and a stolen kiss
Outside the hive where we have wandered.
Speaking for the trees,
We stand taller now than ever before
Not to see the writing,
but to hear the whispers
behind closed doors.
I reached...
and touched what I thought was the sun
and noticed it was just beyond my fingertips
but my tiny hand is warmed
by two lips
and that became more important to me
than any sun could be.
Speaking for the trees
Some have made their homes in me
climbed inside my head
behind my eyes
opened the door to my soul
He said he saw a sunset burning through the canopy
of endless time
Hanging like leaves
having held on through a strong wind
Lonicerahoneyed aroma-
trumpets suckled by hummers
draw summer nearer
cascading, intertwining
weaving closed the gap from spring
Tending the WeedsI used to let you
tend my garden,
but you've never been good
at telling the roses
apart from the weeds.
