Fun fact: the aquatic frogs here have antifreeze in their blood and can freeze/hibernate in the winter having their heart stop beating but when it gets warm again they thaw out and mate 0_0๐Ÿธ

Fun fact: there may be extra mushrooms here this year because of the weather we got. I go go really far in depth with fungi lol but supposedly when you walk on the earth and leave a footprint, the mycelium grows even more there๐Ÿ„๐Ÿคท๐ŸŒฑย

This is a great thread. I love that you climbed a tree the other day. I think I'm going to give it a go soon as well. I used to climb so many trees when I was little - it somehow gives you a special connection to nature. I miss that.ย

Aww thanks! I think nature can really help us feel at peace and accepted๐ŸŒผ You are going to try climbing a tree๐Ÿ˜ƒ thats so exciting! Do let me know how it goes if you want๐Ÿ˜ It is a rarity for me because i need to find just the right tree to clime, often a conifer for me. And normally I have someone come with me too just in case XDโค๏ธ

I will for sure. It might take a little while, because, like you I need to find the right tree to climb. One that is easy to climb so I don't fall offย ๐Ÿ˜…. But I will let you know once I've done itย ๐Ÿ™‚

I just wanted to let you know that I finally did it - I found the right tree and I climbed itย ๐Ÿ˜€!! It felt great to be up a tree again. Although I have to admit I'm not as fearless as I was as a little child. Definitely didn't climb up as high as I used to. Thanks though for inspiring meย ๐Ÿ˜

Ahhhhh! That is so fun to hear! I think I was more flexible when i was a kid, literally haha I am so glad it felt right tho, thats super special and cool, good for you! I have not climbed a tree since we last talked ๐Ÿ˜… I am so happy I inspired you, its a cycle for me because I got inspired by a tree then passed it on!

Thanks so much and thanks again for the inspiration!! I feel oddly proudย ๐Ÿ’ช My favourite part is finding a good spot to sit, listen to all the birds, insects etc around you and justย  enjoy the world from a completely different perspectiveย ๐Ÿ˜€

I don't mind you asking at all - it was an oak tree with some nice low branches and thick ones, too. Made the climbing much easierย ๐Ÿ˜€

Oh wow~

You oughta be proud :D So cool

I am not sure i have ever climbed an oak tree! The ones here have mostly high branches or ant friends ๐Ÿค” Yes! Oh when you find that spot to sit, everything just looks different!

There are some really old oak trees around here, and I can't/don't climb them, but my gosh they are what I would call holy ๐Ÿ˜

I know, the old ones in particular seem really special.... I was lucky, because the trunk was split a bit and that helped me to get onto the first branch, as it was leaning down quite a bit- I could sort of walk up it if that makes sense. But as I said I didn't go very far up after that ๐Ÿ™ˆ- maybe next time I'll be braver!!

Sure! You do kinda build up trust of the tree and yourself overtime, so I would understand if next time you wanted to take one step up higher into that tree ๐Ÿ˜

Ah and yes, I am not sure this is quite what you are talking about but there is an oooooold oak around here where some branches actually dip and touch the ground!ย 

lol itโ€™s funny cuz we are not squirrels but we still kinda enjoy climbing ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿคญ

Trees trees trees :D

There's a park pretty close to my house (There are many, tbh, and it's like that in the entire city, so...not location specific =) Anywayys sorry for my overuse of parentheses) and it has a singular tree that's climable....but they took down a bunch of branches but Iย stillย climb it. Anyway, it's really fun to hang out in it and draw or whatever, and sometimes I try to pull my dog up with me so she can see the view :) But every once in a while some person will come tell me how much they miss climbing the tree because they climbed it when they were younger. It's an interesting community bonding experience

That's impressive ๐Ÿ’ช! I need low branches to be able to climb a tree :)ย 

Haha, what does your dog think about being pulled up a tree?

I agree, climbing trees really can be a community bonding experience. I think, deep down, everyone wants to do it, right? There is something very special about trees. For me, they are really grounding....

OH MY GOSH, I LOVE THIS CHAT!!!!

I also love trees, too!! And climbing them!!! I love the feeling of being in the branches and looking out over at everything, and feeling powerful, especially when sometimes it feels like we're so small in this world. When you're in a tree, it's just you, and the branches, and the sky.

What's even more exhilarating is climbing high in a tree when it's windy :):):) Maybe not the safest thing lol, but it's fun :)

I think everyone should climb trees more often, and allow their inner child to surface a bit more.

I agree ๐Ÿ˜€!! I feel like there would be a lot less conflict in the world if people just climbed trees more oftenย ๐ŸŒณ
