Birch Tree Comments

Saying for the Day: Birch trees were created by God but God didn't create pictures of them.

Its leave a comment Monday.
I have been getting so many nice comments lately that I don’t have a need to whine or beg as I have in the past.

Instead I thought I’d share a comment problem I have.

When I leave comments I want them to be fresh, funny ( if possible) , clear, honest, and on topic. I don’t want to leave spam.

So I carefully read the entry for the day and then struggle to leave the best possible comment.

This leads me to my problem.

What kind of comment can you leave on birch trees?

Before we go on let me in my defense say that I didn’t start off as a birchaphobe. I took 4-h and made great things out of birch bark ( like little sinkable canoes). Some of my best friends have birch trees in their yards.

But there are lots of people out there in the great blog universe posting pictures of birch trees. There are birch trees in snow and birch trees without snow. Birch trees with leaves and without leaves. Birch trees with birds and birch trees without birds. There are solitary birch trees and entire forests. When you run out of photographs there are drawings of birch trees in realistic and nonrealistic forms.

I have seen so many birch tree pictures that I am becoming a birchaphobe . When I am riding in the car and see a birch tree I reach for my mouse to move to another blog (Chevrolet , however, didn’t supply a mouse with the car).

But I digress. The problem is that it is Monday and I want to leave a comment on every blog I go to that allows one. But what do I say to birch trees?

“That’s the best birch tree I have ever seen” wouldn’t be honest since if you’ve seen one birch tree you’ve seen them all.
‘ I’ve never seen a birch tree like that before” again not honest and not funny either.

“Wow, what camera did you use to get that picture”. Since I know nothing about cameras and couldn’t care less what camera was used. It doesn’t meet my criteria either.

So I end up leaving spam like comments. “nice blog you have here”, “good birch tree picture”, “there a lot of birds in that tree”, or “ I’ve never seen a birch tree picture upside down like that before.

Then I feel bad ( it doesn’t take much to make me feel bad).

I should have left a better comment.
I need to read up on birch trees, photography, and art.

Then I’ll leave the greatest birch tree comment ever.

7900 spins without a win. Old Hapless is bit disappointed today. He didn't win the Iwon.com annual million despite all his entries, he didn't win any of the March special prizes even though he had 3100 entries, and he didn't win the week end $1000. He tries so hard and never, never wins. But this is a new month and he will start again.
Well Uncle Wiggly lovers if Old Hapless doesn't find a contest where he guesses the number of birds in the birch tree and gets it right causing one bird to fly away. We will be back tomorrow with "As the World Spins"
****

Well I went to thirty random blogs this morning and left 28 comments. I didn't see a single birch tree. I wonder where they all went?Betty went to the dentist. She needs a crown. I bit the bullet and did my income tax and e-filed the forms. Ended up owing about $3700. If you read the comments section on today's post you will see at least four things to say about birch trees. Well I need a breathing treatment.

What kind of comment could be left about birches? I could mimic Aristophanes and say "Birches white!
Where they stand,
Tall and bright,
No stranger of land."

Prophetic, huh?

My advice is avoid photoblogs, Dr. John.

If needs be, when presented with a totally abstract pattern produced by a digitally manipulated photograph, just say "coooool!" and hope for the best.

If I can't think of a comment in a relatively short period of time, I move on to find something where I can comment intelligently. It's nice to give comments — and receive them — and if I had to do a "birchin" comment, I'd google it:

# hard close-grained wood of any of various birch trees; used especially in furniture and interior finishes and plywood
# any betulaceous tree or shrub of the genus Betula having a thin peeling bark
# whip with a birch twig
# consisting of or made of wood of the birch tree
# a switch consisting of a twig or a bundle of twigs from a birch tree; used to hit people as punishment; "my father never spared the birch"

Birch tree bark is a good way to start a fire. It goes up in flames right away!

What comment can you leave about Birch Trees (Betula spp.)?

What comment CAN'T you leave?!

Let me make a few suggestions.

COMMENT ONE
I must admit that I am rather impressed with the health of your birch tree, inasmuch as Birch trees are river bank trees because they prefer moist ground and typically requite copius amounts of water.

COMMENT TWO
I must say, I find your choice of Birch tree rather intrigueing. Whereas there are at least eight species of Birch tree only three are typically grown in drier climates, and you do live in Arizona. Those three, as I'm sure you know, are the:

Paper Birch (Betula papyrifera)- which i humorously like to refer to as the "Yankee Birch" (ha ha ha) because, as i'm sure you know, it is native to NORTHERN forests and river banks.

River Birch (Betula nigra) - which is VERY resistant to insects and disease pests. It yields a darker shade of birch which tends to peel horizontally.

European Weeping Birch (Betual Pendula var. gracilis)- being a European birch it is obvious that this tree will be more susceptible to attacks by insects and disease, but it's rather gracefull weeping form in adition to its deep cut leavea, and some which have purple leaves, makes it worth while to take the risk.

Instead you've chosen to plant a Yellow birch. And, as i'm sure you know, it requires a COOL, MOIST planting site, i find your choice rather bold. have you chosen it because it can be grown in more shade than the other species of Birch trees?

COMMENT THREE
Your Heritage Birch is a rather healthy tree so clearly you've treated it well...

I could not help but shed tears when i saw your picture of the tree. Its salmon colored bark reminded me of my Grandfather, God rest his soul, who was a salmon fisherman.

I cried, but I smiled. Thank you.

COMMENT FOUR
A WHITE BIRCH!?!?! YOU PLANTED A WHITE BRICH?! Are we not more enlightened than that? Why does the issue of race keep coming back to haunt us? HAVE WE LEARNED NOTHING FROM THE MUSIC OF MICHAEL JACKSON? "It don't matter if you're black or white!"

i could go on.. but you get the point...

:-)

I love to receive comments, but only if they're sincere. So, you're very welcome to visit my blog -- but if you're not inspired to comment, by all means, move on! There's no reason to feel guilty about that.

Blogger kristi said...

The white birch tree is the state tree of New Hampshire. They do have a unique look about them. I think that there are a many things that have been made out of a birch tree. I do know I thing for sure, I do not have a birch, nor do I have a picture of a birch on my blog. Maybe I'll post one just for you Dr. John!!! LOL

5:20 PM  
Blogger Huzaifa said...

If you *really* want to comment, you can always write " Say, is that your pet squirrel on one of the lower branches?... It sure looks tasty. "
This has the added advantage of freaking them out.

(PS: works on any kind of tree.)
