If A Tree Falls In The Forest…

…and no one is there to write about it…

Well, just getting started here so, if you happen to stumble upon my site, here’s a little something light and airy to read. Enjoy.

Taking a walk in the woods during the spring kind of sowed a seed or planted an idea about all the ways we use tree and plant idioms. I know that was a while ago but, I’ve been more focused on turning over a new leaf.

Don’t worry, I won’t bore you with that old chestnut. Instead, I figured I’d go out on a limb here and try something with flowery speech. Of course, if I’m barking up the wrong tree here, feel free to nip this in the bud and read no further. I’m personally hoping that this post isn’t a thorn in your side and, you’ll keep reading (knock on wood). Besides, reading this is better than watching the grass grow, isn’t it? Anyways, I’ll stop beating around the bush and get on with it.

By now, you probably have figured out that this isn’t your garden variety entry and, that I’m probably just losing my gourd. Although I thought writing this would be as easy as falling off a log, I find that it’s like grasping at straws to come up with all of this. You might even say that coming up with these idioms is like finding a needle in a haystack but, we’re getting there. After all, never a rose without the pricks. And this is not a bed of roses.

Was that the last straw or are you still with me? Actually, this is getting to be a bit much and I’m having trouble seeing the forest through the trees so maybe, this is a good place to offer the olive branch and let the matter drop. So I guess you’re out of the woods now and I’m done with the puns. I’m going to make like a tree and leave you now. Maybe I’ll just hit the hay

So see you soon and be safe. It’s a jungle out there!

p.s. I was thinking about starting up a new business. Does anyone have any ideas on how to come up with some seed money?
