Weekly Photo Challenge – Grow

A tree grows tall nourished by sun, soil and water.  A tall tree provides sanctuary with shade from the sun on hot days and a trunk to lean on for rest.  I see the beauty in a tree.

For the Weekly Photo Challenge: Growth, I thought of trees that grow from the seeds in a pine cone to a pine.

The birch tree shedding its bark as it grows.  It peels like paper.  Nature provides us with the bark to make into canoes.

  1. I love the image of the birch – but my husband’s family owns a Christmas tree farm – so we’ve watched those trees grow from seeds to… well Christmas tress (with all the steps and years in between)… so the pine cone gets my vote!
