    If trees could talk

    My house came with this beautiful Japanese maple. I happen to have the same kind in a pot.
    So I imagined a conversation those two could have:
    Big Tree (BT): Where did you come from? You sort of look like me.
    Little Tree(LT): I'm not sure. Somebody put me on this big dark thing and it started moving. Then it stopped, and here I am.
    BT: Why are your feet in this thing? Why are you so small? What do you mean it started moving?
    LT: All those questions! I'm just a tree like you.
    BT: You're right. Let's grow old together.

    Oh, how nice! They're both gorgeous. They'll make a great couple!

    I meant," said Ipslore bitterly, "what is there in this world that truly makes living worthwhile?"
    Death thought about it.
    CATS, he said eventually. CATS ARE NICE.

    Trees do talk to each other - through root systems some places have shown!

    I wonder what our trees are saying Karen. We have at least seven Woodpeckers, non stop peckers. They start in the morn and quit in the eve. Not really sure exactly how the trees feel about that, hope they don't mind. I figure that they peck dead trees, we have a whole forest in the back so it's hard to tell. We counted 7 peckers on Sun. Noisy sonovaguns, cute little devils but very loud peckers 😀

    Aww, reminds me of that Song Adam Sandler sang "All I wanna do, is grow old with you".

    They are eating the insects and larvae from dead portions of trees, usually, so are not harming living tissue.
