Is there anyplace else we’d rather be,
than nestled up high in the
palm of a tree

‘palm of a tree’ = brilliant!

It’s all I could see/think of watching these children up there in this tree…an outreached palm holding them~ Thanks so much Jules!

Great photo! Reminds me of my childhood. I used to sit on trees and read.

Thanks Cornelia!! I love when a photo can conjure up memories like that — huge compliment. Your work does that often btw! Sending you good thoughts for a wonderful day:)

Wonderful Robyn, I remember climbing trees and my daughter too…brings back good memories…and I like this one in black and white….

Thanks Meryl! Yes – I just said to Cornelia that it’s so wonderful when an image can take you back to something wonderful like this. I don’t think I ever did climb trees in my childhood… Just seems so wonderful to be looking down on nature from up there…. maybe something to put on my ‘bucket-list’ 🙂

Coincidently, I had my palm trees trimmed today and in one of them was a bird’s nest and nestled in the nest were three little eggs. So, it’s interesting that today’s post has a tree theme. Maybe I’m just going out on a limb here but perhaps I should branch out a little… Anyway, great shot. xo I was trying to think of some more tree humor and then Choochee barked at me and I was stumped. Sorry, it’s late…:) Tree ya later! xo 🙂

🙂 Thanks Tara — Thinking of you. LOL – you are so funny — yes – we need to go out on a few limbs and branch out – and all will be well then forever more …. xo

Looks a lovely place to be.
Reminds me of my childhood.

Wow Victoria – you are the 3rd person to say that. I think iI really missed out as I don’t recall climbing any trees. I lived in a relatively new suburb of New York City – so perhaps there weren’t many around ~ or I was too busy tumbling and standing on my head 🙂 Glad you liked the post – thanks so much!

Our first famly home was built by my Father and surrounded by natural bush so my brother and I wandered around freely catching little lizards, tadpoles from a pond and climbing trees. I wasn’t as adventurous as my older brother though. Now that little weatherboard house is surrounded by suburbia and modern homes.

wow.. I know the feeling… where I grew up has totally changed as well…guess it’s unavoidable these days, but kind of sad:( I still long to climb a tree though:)

Nice deep relaxed breaths…this truly looks so tranquil and even with the coloration you have it…how wonderful is this:)

Oh – thanks David… yes watching these young girls run excitedly to the tree and climb it with such ease…. then settle in and sort of enter a peaceful zone…. it was pretty amazing. Made my heart slow down a bit… Maybe I will set a goal to get up there sometime soon too 😉

Lovely – I feel a poem coming on…..
May 9, 2012 at 9:15 AM
Thanks Wendy!! That is really so flattering to me (when a photo of mine inspires poetry by another artist). Let me now if it happens… Would be thrilled to share it here in a future re-post!! Have a terrific day 😉

I’m writing it. It will be ready tomorrow I think. I’m reliving memories of my childhood – I spent a large amount of time in trees!
May 9, 2012 at 2:34 PM
It’s written – thank you for the idea Robyn – Wendy x

Thanks Renee…. yes – special image, it was great energy watching these girls play!
May 9, 2012 at 1:30 PM
I love this! And no, I can’t think of a better place to be at the moment 🙂 Just perfect Robyn. xoxo

Thanks tons Jeannie… yes think we all need to be held in the hand of a tree every now and then! 🙂 So glad you liked!!
May 9, 2012 at 1:32 PM
Aaaa, I love this! My daughters are avid tree climbers too. Is there a better place to be? It’s right ‘up’ there. Love love love this!:)
May 11, 2012 at 8:42 AM
Thanks RL! Appreciate. Yes – it seems there is no better place to be…get lots of photos of your daughters up there – they will cherish them later!!
Have a wonderful day!

lol, or they cover my walls…I may not display it here, but I have another site, just a family blog, and it’s brimming with them 🙂 We have one particular girl here who is an amazingly little photographer too.

trees provide safety, shade, beauty, oxygen and so much more …
wondering if those ducks there are floating around with one eye open as well,
wishing you well as always Robyn …:)
