“The Tears of Trees”

Description from Julie Shane: I've been looking at teardrop beads lately. They go rather nicely with bellflowers.
I did a search for "teardrop" and found so many pretty greens. Then I did a search for "leaf" and found more lovelies.

Then "tree's tears" came to mind. And I wondered if trees cry and grieve because of what we humans do to nature. Well obviously that created my title.
Are we careful enough???

    No, we are most definitely not as a human race taking good care of nature. We must do better. As for your pick, Mrs. Lorax, I think you did a wonderful job with that! :) !!!!!

    Oh my what a lovely pick – so inspirational. No its obvious that nobody cares anymore about anything or anybody for that matter. So sad! No wonder the trees are crying.

    Its a gorgeous pick Julie. As far as the question it asks…no we are not too careful. I think in some ways we have improved but unless every person makes a decision to do everything they can….
    The absolute disgusting waste in retail disgust me every day. I could tell you about things I saw being trashed instead of discounted, recycled, reused that would make you cry.
