Hard to believe it’s been a whole month since I’ve done a Thursday Tree Love post. Our esteemed WordPress blog hop host, Parul, was busy offline for the last one on July 8th and while I planned to do one anyway, before I knew it, Friday the 9th had already rolled around. But earlier today I took my camera, my husband, and our dog and went visiting the woods for my post today.
However, be warned – I got a little carried away with how many pictures I took. Okay, maybe a lot carried away…lol!
In total, I had close to 150 shots after wandering for over an hour. My first pass through all the shots, picking the ones that caught my eye, left me with about 60 to choose from, and try as I might, I couldn’t get the number down to my usual dozen or two. So I have 42 photos and 1 animated gif (instead of a video) to share with everyone!
Before I get on with the pictures, a quick shout out to my blogging friend Parul to say thank you for hosting this awesome blog hop every couple of weeks (especially knowing what a rough time you’ve had offline as of late). If you want to join in the Tree love blog hop fun, it’s really easy – here’s the description from her latest post today, called #ThursdayTreeLove – 111:
Thursday Tree love is a photo feature hosted on this blog on every 2nd and 4th Thursday of a month. The next edition will go live on August 12, 2021. If you would like to play along, post a picture of a tree on your blog, tell me where did you spot the tree and link it back to this post.
If you don’t see the pingback, please leave a link to your post in my comments section. Please make sure that your post’s link is showing up on this latest edition. I will link your posts on my blog in the next edition and spread some love. Let’s come together to appreciate the beautiful nature around us.
As for these photos, they were taken in my Durham, NH yard with my Nikon which was affixed to my handy dandy tripod. All were resized, then cleaned up a bit with PicMonkey (mostly the exposure and sharpness).
One last thing before I get started – a special shout out to another blogger on Hive who decided to join in the fun as well! On my last Thursday Tree Love post back in June, @sunnyag shouted out in the comment section to ask if he could participate as well, even if he didn’t have a WordPress blog. I told him to go for it, and earlier today he tagged me in this awesomesauce post Green Solstice Trees #ThursdayTreeLove. Be sure to check out the bazillion beautiful tree pictures he shared from Australia!
Now speaking of pictures, it’s time to share my own bazillion photos!
Visiting the woods on July 22nd, 2021.
Hope you enjoyed coming along while we were visiting the woods, and happy Thursday Tree Love everyone!
Thanks for stopping by!
