Trees’ power

Le pouvoir des arbres
Trees’ power

English version below the picture

Quand je suis assis dans la salle de séjour j’aime laisser mon regard errer sur le vert rideau d’arbres au bout de la pelouse
Cette contemplation des différentes nuances de vert m’apporte la paix et élève mon âme

A gauche une ancienne écurie devenue garage, la pelouse et au fond le rideau d’arbres
On the left an ancient stable become a garage , the lawn and at the end the trees curtain

When I sit in the living room I like to let my gaze wander over the green curtain of trees at the end of the lawn.
This contemplation of the different shades of green brings me peace and rise my soul

Quand je suis fatigué de travailler dans le potager situé après les arbres ou quand il pleut, je viens m’asseoir dans un hangar. De là, je vois les puissantes branches de l’if près de moi. Ce spectacle régénère mes forces.

The branches and foliage of the yew tree near me
Les branches et le feuillage de l’If près de moi

When I am tired of working in the vegetable garden located after the trees or when it rains I come to sit in a shed. From there I see the mighty branches of the yew tree near me. This show regenerates my strengths.

Mes forces revenues, je me lève et retourne au potager . Je suis accompagné et encouragé par une haie de Symphorine aux baies blanches, de Néflier etc. Sont là aussi des arbres de plus grande taille : Noyer , puis Pommier, Houx et Sophora. Ils me parlent ,me donnent du souffle pour aller de l’ avant et travailler.

Foreground (premier plan): haie de symphorines à baies blanches ( Symphoricarpus albus ) et néflier ( Meddlar tree )
Behind::noyer ( walnut tree ), pommier (apple tree) houx( holly tree) et (and ) Sophora.

My forces being back, I get up and go back to the vegetable garden. I am accompanied and encouraged by a hedge of Symphoricarpos albus with white berries, Medlar tree etc. There are also larger trees: Walnut tree, then Apple tree, Holly tree and Sophora. They talk to me, give me breath to go ahead and work.

    Beautiful. Trees are a blessing in so many ways…
    Protection, shade, food….So many kinds of trees…A shelter and home for birds.
    You are blessed to have so many beautiful trees to enjoy.

    votre amie,

    Our trees are finally getting big

    So good that you are feeling well and working in the garden! I love the look of your trees. The human eye is especially sensitive to the color green and can distinguish even a slight variation in the color! Green speaks to our mind and soul and reminds us of life.

  6. blb1 says:

    I also really like trees and your yard looks so peaceful. I can only sit outside in Spring or Winter as it is to hot in the Summer. Now I look at brown grass and can no longer drag a hose around to water as it would do no good now.

    Oui, la nature est superbe belle, on ne sait pas assez la regarder et la respecter. Je suis comme toi je ne m en lasse pas et c est chaque jour différent avec la lumière et les saisons. C est ressourçant et apaisant. Je te souhaite une bonne journée et je t embrasse bien fort Carole

    • “Mais la nature est là qui t’invite et qui t’aime ;
      Plonge-toi dans son sein qu’elle t’ouvre toujours
      Quand tout change pour toi, la nature est la même,
      Et le même soleil se lève sur tes jours.”
      Extrait du “Vallon” poème de Lamartine

  8. Peggy says:

    I too love all the many shades of green!

  9. Susan Joos says:

    I do love our trees, as well. The view from the front and the back of my house is of my trees. We lost several in the last few years due to the ash borers, and it was a tough loss. They were only about 35 years old, young in tree years.

  10. ❤ nature does renew our soul
    lovely to hear your ramblings, michel
    stay well!

    • As Lamartine wrote : “Nature is there , inviting and loving, it is an offering. When all changes for us, Nature remains the same and the same sun is rising on every of our days ” extracts of “le vallon” translated by me !! 🙂

  11. whyzat says:

    You are so wise, Michel. Near our house are some huge, mature trees. When the wind blows, they wave and toss as though they are trying to break free and go on their way to another place. I would miss them!

  12. Trees are peaceful to look at and can bring down stress levels. Each tree is different, especially in color. What a wonderful yard you have to sit, enjoy the trees and think about the many good things that Mother Nature has given us. Enjoy your day, my friend. ❤ Marilyn

    Les arbres nous donnent la force de survivre aux dégâts de l’âge… et ça tant plus pour moi, qui maintenant suis en train de perdre la capacité de reconnaître les différences entre les couleurs verts et bleus… (pour faute des injections intravitréennes, on m’a dit 😥). Je fixe les couleurs des arbres et des fleurs dans ma mémoire pour pouvoir me les rappeler lorsque je ne les verrai plus. J’espère que ces arbres donnent à toi la force de continuer malgré les petits et grands problèmes de la vie!
    Amicalement, Annalisa

    • Je suis désolé , Annalisa , d’apprendre que tu es en train de perdre la capacité de reconnaître les couleurs vert et bleu. N ‘y a-t-il pas moyen d ‘arrêter ce processus .
      Je te fais part de toute mon amitié et de mon support.

  14. BarbaraLenhard says:

    Michel, you have such beautiful trees on your property. The gardens are all beautiful. It is a lot of work to keep all of that up. I hope you have help
    Love, Barbara 💞

  15. Barbara Lenhard says:

    I replied but the reply did not post so I would just say hello and see if this one posts
    ❤️ Barbara

  16. Wonderful my friend. Trees do help us to live!

    I love your yard with its beautiful trees and gardens! Trees are a favorite of mine. My city (Springfield, Ohio) has trees throughout it, giving it the honor and distinction of being named a “Tree City”! 🌲🌳 💕 Sitting on a chair and watching trees is a good way to get relaxed and rejuvenated. You speak of this so poetically, Michel. Love💚 Carolyn

    Trees benefit us in so many ways! Their beauty, their ability to add oxygen into the air,. The food they give us. That pece and calm that comes of the sound a light breeze makes rustling a tree’s leaves. The creatures that live in them and that amuse and entertain us. The shade they give that makes a hot day a little more bearable. And much more. I used leaves shed from my trees in Fall to improve the texture of a clay soil in my garden spaces. The leaves also shared their nutrients with the garden planted later. The adventure of climbing trees when I was a child is a fond memory. When I was stationed in Germany a tree that sprouted in a field outside of town was the only tree in that field, and it was what I thought about whern I felt a touch of homesickness.

  19. Your trees are beautiful, Michel! Trees bring life to our lives! I’m so glad your trees talk to you (mine talk to me!) and bring you such peace, joy, and beauty! 🙂
    HUGS!!! 🙂

  20. PS…I talk to trees AND I’ve hugged a few! 🙂

  21. Marion says:

    Greenery is very invigorating to look at, giving us inspiration to walk amongst it, and as you’ve said, beckons you back after resting. 🙂

  22. Rachel says:

    Time. The passing of time and how we all use it. This stands out to me. Most days I am watching Misha, or my client on the weekend. Hours pass. It is like watching the sands go through the hourglass. Fall is coming. Hugs to you, Michel. (((💚)))

  23. Isabel Capillas says:

    It’s been a while since I read your last post at wordpress, Uncle Michel. Yes , trees are calming and soothes the tired spirit. It provides a good place to relax too on a sunny day❤️ .

  24. Larry Banner says:

    That’s the power of Nature! Well done, Michel! Hope you are well these days! Cheers!

  25. Resa says:

    Very beautiful! Thank you!

    I am always happy when the trees are green. Lets me know that warmer weather is here. Winter always looks so gray and black—and white with snow, of course. Depressing to me. But then the trees start budding out, and it brings joy to me—-color again. Not mentioning the warmth that I cherish!! Since Ken did not buy or plant any annual flowers this year, I really missed seeing the bright colors all around the yard the whole summerl. The yearly, perennial flowers come for a short time and then are done. When I sit in my comfortable chair in the living room, I look out the window and see our Mountain Ash tree. I watch the summer pass by watching it’s progress. After the leafing out, clusters of white flowers form first, then changing to berry clusters. Those clusters change slowly from yellowish to orange, and finally to red. Then the robins fill the tree and eat the berries just before leaving our area for a warmer climate for the winter. They usually leave a few berries for me to see some color out there during the winter. Your yard always looks so beautiful. You and Janine take care of it with such love every year!! ❤ Nancy and Ken

  27. You have such a wonderful garden and I believe it helps your health. I also read somewhere that looking at the various shades of green helps reduce eye strain.

  28. Zakiah says:

    Is there anything more beautiful than a tree? I love looking at trees, while I sit at my home, or as I drive around the town. Such beauty in the dignity of these trees. We are blessed so much when we enjoy them and take care of them.

  29. Eat Right Chef Louisa says:

    You have many beautiful and lush trees, Michel, and what a balm to the soul to be able to rest under them when tired.

  30. Anne-Marie says:

    Ils sont beaux et nous aident à vivre peut-être parce que comme eux nous sommes liés à notre Arbre de Vie …
    Amitiés. AM

    You are so lucky to have a lot large enough to include a stand of trees. The days are past when one bought a parcel, located the yards and trees, and then decided where to put the house. It should be a crime to needlessly take down an old-growth tree.
    “Trees” by Joyce Kilmer

    • When we bought the house in the last century, Neil, there already was a large backyard with trees . Some are dead some are new planted by us. You are right we were lucky
      I like the poem written by Joyce Kilmer .I would like to write like that

  32. Ah…you have such beauty around you..trees, the garden, family. LOVE it.

  33. Lavinia Ross says:

    Trees and green spaces are very healing, Michel. I am glad you take the time to enjoy them, and take comfort in their presence and special beauty. ❤

  34. A beautiful anthem to trees, Michel. Their beauty, power and capacity to give us peace. I love this post.

    Aren’t trees amazing! A giant redwood fell in California yesterday. Unfortunately, someone was killed when it fell. Those trees are amazing, though. They live incredibly long lives and have seen much more than any human.
