Middling

Sunday tree

The tiny tree encircled by a sarong of green leaves, under the protective shadow of the tall tree reaching out to the skies, drew me in. Braving a ferocious Sun and risking a migraine, I walked close to admire the cute little one. It was only later that I realized that I hadn’t even spared a glance for the unobtrusive, reserved middle one.

The Doting Grandma

Contrast Tree

This stolid and probably ancient tree reminds me of a doting grandparent. Can’t you just hear the fresh green ‘uns demanding another story? welcoming their eagerness, she lets them clamber all over her and if a few friends join in – no problem! There’s lots of space and love to go around 😀

WPC: Gratified and Delighted

Those of you who are regular visitors to my blog would know that I am rather partial to trees and that is putting it mildly 😀 My obsession is common knowledge among friends and family so whenever and wherever they go they never forget to share photos of trees. I feel blessed, overwhelmed and more than satisfied at their warm gesture and for taking time out in the midst of their work and pleasure trips. Here I share some photos from my collection of enchanting trees from near and far.

I hope you too will like them 🙂

TallB

My friends sneaked off to the hills without telling me 😦 But then came the photos – what were you thinking BS? Tall and slim like these trees? In our next lives for sure 😉

DecoB

We are more like this one – grounded and juggling a lot of pies 😉 😀 Cheers

CocoR

Now for some trees from Sri Lanka – thanks Ruma 🙂 Coconut shells form a decorative earthen pot for the plant. But later it is completely absorbed into the earth.

UnrulyR

Then there’s this unruly wild child of the forest

MaskedR

The tree turns into a convenient display spot for attractive and fascinating masks

I just love this photo – don’t you?

LeavesA

Time for a change!

SwingA

My cousin found this mottled beauty along the road. Doesn’t it look as if she is leaning back on a push swing and any moment she is going to take off?

MassivePThere’s this massive one from Dublin snapped by my sister while on an educational trip there.

HairyPA hairy one and quite unapologetic too!

TwoPIs that two trees or one? Oh what does it matter – there’s just one like you, muaahh

A huge thank you to all you lovely people for being so generous with your time and keeping me in your thoughts – do keep them flowing 😉

Have a super week ahead 🙂

Doppelgänger

I grew up hearing that each of us has seven other people somewhere in this world who looks exactly like us. Have you heard of it? Do you believe it? I am very skeptical about this theory until I found a tree doppelgänger half way across the world! Don’t believe me? Take a look.

If you are regular visitor to my blog (or home) you may have seen this tree right outside my window.

ViennaDoesn’t it look eerily similar to this one in Vienna?

You and I

will never meet

but

it is enough

to know

that our

roots

are anchored

on the same

earth.
