Walk around the garden and contemplate the seed pods as they form on spring trees looking like gold dripping from the network of branches. If you look closely, a small chickadee sits on a branch on the left.
The fluffy white blooms of a cherry tree cross and blend to form segments that look like large cotton candy balls.
I am joining Donna at Garden Walk Garden Talk for Word for Wednesday. The word is tracery. Tracery is defined as the ornamental work of ribs and bars in panels and screens or the delicate work of lines in a network. Leaves, branches, and trees create a network as they converge and intercross.
The blooms and branches of spring intertwine with the leftover leaves and branches of winter.
The labyrinth of veins in leaves seems complex and yet beautiful and intricate. Emerging leaves are blurred with fuzziness as pathways are still in development.
The intricate workings of a spider's web is woven like the most delicate of fabrics.
The graceful upper branches of a large tree reach up and crisscross to form a grid of design against the sky.
What do you see as you contemplate your garden?
Earth Day Celebration
I am planning to have the second annual Earth Day Reading Project blog meme to celebrate Earth Day 2012 starting on April 1. The Earth Day Reading Project is a month long blog meme where bloggers are asked to share what books inspired them to live more sustainably and post it to the meme. Because there are some bloggers who participated last year and already shared what books inspired them to live more sustainably, I will add another category that will allow them to continue to participate. I will be doing things a bit differently this year to make it easier to participate and refer back to the books mentioned in the meme. All the books from last year's Earth Day Reading Project are listed here.
