Looking Vs Seeing ! #ThursdayTreeLove

Wisdom inspired by plants/trees…

You walk towards the kitchen in the morning and what first catches your eye is the branches of a tree against the sky, seen straight ahead through the kitchen window. The fresh green of the new leaves gleaming in the sunlight.

Each morning, you try to take in this view and then go over to the balcony to say hello to your plants and to take in more of the views that you’re blessed to have. To pay attention, to click and preserve. Joy and gratitude!

You see the same or almost same view day after day and you think you know. But then, one afternoon, nearly evening or maybe even dusk, you are stuck by the difference in the appearance of the same branches, leaves. It is then, you actually see! The leaves appear to be in a sort of slumber, droopy against the evening sky.

The next morning you are curious. Indeed, the leaves are again all bright and upright! Gleaming as always against the sun rays of the eastern sky…

You are so excited by this discovery that you make everyone at home observe it!

The view in the evening… reminds me of the ‘touch-me-not’ plant!

Another view trying to capture the entire tree…

I dont know the name of this tree, though in all likelihood it belongs to the pea family Fabaceae. Waiting for it to flower so that I may get some more clue.

It is growing in the vacant land adjacent to our apartment and I’m hoping that it will continue to be there and flourish unlike many other plants that have been cleared out from time to time.

Linking up with this week’s edition ofΒ #ThursdayTreeLoveΒ hosted by Parul πŸ™‚ If you would like to play along, post a picture of a tree on your blog and link it back to her latest #thursdaytreelove post.

Until next time!

  2. O I so get you. When you’ve been watching a tree for ever so long and then you suddenly discover something new about it. And I love how you get everyone to watch it too. That’s so me :-).
