Every second and fourth Thursday, Parul at Happiness and Food hosts a bimonthly meme for all tree lovers. Some of the bloggers in this group live in India, a country that is being hit hard by COVID-19 right now. I have never met these bloggers, but they are in my thoughts.
In my native New York State, in the Northeastern United States, we had what we called "The Pause" (a lockdown) back in April and May of last year. Restrictions have gradually been lifted since May.
During the lockdown, on May 22, 2020, I took this picture while we were
out. At the time, any unnecessary driving was prohibited, and I think
we were attempting to visit a butcher in this village for some meat.
You can see how empty this road is.
The tree looks so lonely perched as it is at the side of this almost empty road, but it isn't lonely at all. It has the sun, the air, visiting birds, and perhaps other trees on this street keeping it company.
This tree offers hope - hope that things will get better for everyone in our world. Today is Earth Day, a day when we think of our home planet and how we can restore our earth and the damage we humans have done to it. After all, we were supposed to be its caretakers.
Why not visit Parul's website at the link above and see who else has posted this last Thursday of April's Earth Day?
