Branching out

Time to Ponder yet again.  You know the drill... I post a prompt that has multiple meanings and we get see what you write! Add you post to the linky and wait for the magic!!

(If you want to send me words that you would like us all to ponder - please feel free to do so!)

Today's word is BRANCH (you can always grab the prompt early by visiting the Pondering Page

I walked into my branch of the bank and looked at the branches of the plants and trees that surrounded it and I loved this word!

I have this one tree in my backyard (a persimmon tree) that has huge leaves on it, when there are leaves on it; but now it looks lonely with branches and no leaves.... There is something lonely about a tree without leaves, don't you think.

Some branches are thick and some are thin.  check these out:


You know that picture makes me think of reindeer antlers - they look just like branches - so why are they called antlers??? or why aren't tree branches called antlers?

Now that is something to ponder!

Link up and let me know what you think!


  1. Antlers do look like branches.

    Thank you for hosting this blog hop.

  2. Interesting thoughts on branches. I'm always curious about the crepe myrtles when they are trimmed back to look like antlers instead of branches.

  3. petition to rename bare branches antlers! ha
    I'd like to branch out into different directions --- I think it may be time to find some work outside the home. but I have no idea where to begin. I am all growed up now and I don't know what I want to do. :)

  4. My thoughts on branching out today come from my desire to motivate myself to try more, to be more, and to experience more. I tend to live in my own safe little corner, and I know I'm missing out on some fun things that way. What if we set a goal to branch out and try one thing new each month? Hmmm, maybe I will! :-)

  5. I have to agree with you that naked trees look so very lonely and forlorn, they seem to suit the sadness of the winter, but how beautiful when those tiny buds and leaves begin to form. It would be nice if we could regrow a whole new covering each year!!
