Milkweed the Next Generation 7/7/14

Flashback Saturday, July 7, 2012 – This is my pick photo for today and stars one of my resident robins. For some reason the pair have stayed active driving off newcomers (robins) from their territory. I’m not sure why there has been so much encroachment this year. In years past I haven’t noticed this much territorial issues this late in the summer.

“Inside that tiny seed, lives the roots, branches, bark, trunk, leaves, twigs and apple fruit of that apple tree. You can’t see, feel, hear, taste or smell any of that yet; nevertheless, it is all inside that seed. The moment the seed is in your hand— all of that is in your hand, too, from the root to the bark to the fruit! All you have to do is to push the seed into the soil. And what makes anyone plant any apple seed? It is the belief that in the seed, there is the tree. So, believe. To have a seed, is to have everything.”
