Love a Tree Day...



In nature nothing is perfect and everything is perfect
Trees can be contorted, bent in weird ways
and they're still beautiful.. Alice Walker

It's true, the branches of the old tree above are gloriously convoluted, a sculpture of nature.. it's a little bit fabulous don't you think! I persuaded Aimee to stop working for an hour yesterday afternoon to frolic in the park and hug trees with me :) We laughed a lot, had so much fun, got many strange looks and offers to join in from passers-by.. all for the love of trees. No time this week-end to pursue my own tree but I have a feeling in my bones this is the week we will come together :) Did you know it was 'Love a Tree Day' today.. hope to see you hugging a tree sometime soon.. happy Monday, take care and stay safe...

  2. It is difficult to realize how great a part of all that is cheerful and

    delightful in the recollections of our own life is associated with trees.

  5. I just love seeing trees and watching them change with the seasons ...
    Great photo and yes, we should all hug a tree!

    Happy Monday, although it's still Sunday night here in the UK as I type this!

    All the best Jan

  9. How fun Grace! I did not know it was "Love a Tree Day". It's funny because I already prepared my post for Monday (which is still tomorrow here) and it has pictures of trees!

  10. Good for you two, out there giving those trees the love they deserve. Grace, if it hadn't been for you, I wouldn't have known about this day, so thanks for the heads up.

  12. That second picture is too cute. My granddaughter is standing next to my chair as I type this. Her reaction: hiding!

  22. Love that old rather twisted tree, old trees are often very impessive.
