Research “The Hidden Life of Trees”

After analyzing and thinking about my memory I realized that the most amazing thing that came from this memory, is that everything in that most was there to produce something. 

The trees- shade, oxygen. 

The plants- pollen for the bees.

The soil- nutrients for the plants  

The bees- food. 

After coming to this I did a reading on the roots of trees “The Hidden Life of Trees.” 

Here I learned that we can learn so much from trees, they are wise, they are giving to each other, and they are masters of analyzing their resources and working with what they have.  

I am starting to think.  

If roots are the way trees and other plants communicate with each other, yarn is what textile makers use to communicate. If these came together what would that look like?
