Someone is sitting in the shade today because someone planted a tree a long time ago. Warren Buffett

Here is a nutmeg from the tree planted by my father. Thank you Dad.

The red-whiskered bulbul (Pycnonotus jocosus) is a passerine bird found in Asia. It is a member of the bulbul family. Found mainly in tropical Asia. It has been introduced in many tropical areas of the world where populations have established themselves. It feeds on fruits and small insects and they conspicuously perch on trees and their calls are a loud three or four note call. They are very common in hill forests and urban gardens within its range.
“To A Squirrel At Kyle-Na-No
Come play with me;
Why should you run
Through the shaking tree
As though I’d a gun
To strike you dead?
When all I would do
Is to scratch your head
And let you go.”
― W.B. Yeats
When I opened the door of my house today, this is what I saw. I ran to my room to fetch my camera, and clicked this photograph. Thank you darling squirrel. When I searched for quotes about squirrel, I got this beautiful one. Our World is beautiful indeed. We must learn to enjoy and preserve the beauty. Have a beautiful day friend.
The greater coucal or crow pheasant (Centropus sinensis), is a large non-parasitic member of the cuckoo order of birds, the Cuculiformes. A widespread resident in Asia, from India, east to south China, Nepal and Indonesia, it is divided into several subspecies, some being treated as full species. They are large, crow-like with a long tail and coppery brown wings and found in wide range of habitats from jungle to cultivation and urban gardens. They are weak fliers, and are often seen clambering about in vegetation or walking on the ground as they forage for insects, eggs and nestlings of other birds. They have a familiar deep resonant call which is associated with omens in many parts of its range.
If all of us could plant one tree, how our environment would have been. If you do not have space to plant one, please come as a guest to my home, and plant one. That will give us reasons to visit each other for a genuine cause. I am serious.
