“Those who contemplate the beauty of the earth find reserves of strength that will endure as long as life lasts. There is something infinitely healing in the repeated refrains of nature–the assurance that dawn comes after night, and spring after winter.”
Welcome to my new NorthStarNature blog! I will be sharing pictures of nature from around my home in Central Minnesota and from places I visit. I hope to show the beauty and wonder of nature and explore how we can learn about ourselves from Nature’s wisdom.
This old beauty of an Oak lives behind our house. Think of how many winters and springs it has seen! There are two levels of dilapidated boards from someone’s tree house nestled in its branches. I can’t even fathom the number of acorns it has produced in the course of its lifetime and how many squirrels, turkeys, and deer have been nourished there. One tree. Many years. Much fun. Abundant nourishment. Old Beauty.
