The trees in the woods once talked to a friend of mine as well!
But he was high as a kite on a magic mushroom trip during that experience, so it probably doesn't really count as a real spiritual conversation
between a giant pine tree and Man? LOL!
But cool that your grandaughter enjoys being in the woods! - in today's world it's difficult to get the kids to go out and enjoy the woods in the
(Xbox, Computers etc, etc!)
And the world is now a more dangerous place, so it's sometimes difficult to let them wander off into the nearby woods by themselves as well.
(As many of us did as kids, and without too much fear that something bad might happen)
I have great memories from my childhood when we played in the woods as often as we could during some late summer days, it was really magical moments
One time we even got lost and had to spend one really spooky but also fun night in the woods before the whole community and the Police found us again
the next day near a lake which had some populated vacation-houses and a farm nearby.
(I remember that our parents were worried sick about us - but most of us kids just saw it as a great fantasy adventure in the woods)
So yes! I remember that for us kids by that time, and even now for me as an adult - the woods is a magical place - and it triggers the child's fantasy
in the most fantastic and strange ways.
All kids should take every opportunity and spend more time in the woods IMO!
(And these days, perhaps safer doing it together with an adult)

in the woods during my "trip" down the memory lane! lol!
