Volume 1 - Number 82
| TODAY'S PHOTO
a fallen leaf from the Bo Tree in Marie Selby Gardens
in Sarasota, Florida. There were several different
leaf pictures that I had taken and this one brought
a chuckle when I looked at it today. So that you can
see the others, I've
created a new page on eTeletours. See PATTERNS
ACTIVITY SUGGESTION: Imagine what the world
would look like if you could use one of these leaves
as a filter.
The Bo Tree is a sacred tree to Hindus and Buddas
and in India it is planted near Temples. See a portion
of the information sign on the PATTERNS
page. The tree at Selby Gardens was completely
uprooted by Tropical Storm Gabriel in September, 2001
and was saved through a massive rescue effort.
READER COMMENTS ON THE LAST ISSUE - Issue
"WOW, I love those
colors! Im getting chills up my spine!"
"I am amazed by the way the details--the pattern
on the petals and the stamens show up. As we are denied
scent from this flower, I wonder what it feels like.
It looks soft and smooth, maybe even velvety."
and I chuckled
life it makes me sneeze! I do not Love allergy Season."
Did anyone else
do ant writing from the prompts yesterday that you
would like to share and have included on special THOUGHT-PROVOKING
RESPONSE pages that I'm adding to eTeletours.com,
as time allows. As an example, you can see Morgine
Jurdan's response to my "been there, done that"
comment and query on the nesting blue herons on ptp_response65.
