Tree Magic

If you have ever been drawn to a particular tree, you know that trees have personality.

While sitting under a large oak tree 15 years ago, I knew that the property we were wandering across would become our land. The tree in its quiet groundedness wrapped me in its green shade and whispered: “This is your place.” Trees can do that to you.

One of my photo exhibits this year was held at an arboretum and focused on trees (of course!). This is one of the images from the tree exhibit – tree bark, as unique as a finger print, and even more riveting.

    Trees are great company if one starts befriending and spending time with them. I have seven trees at various stages of growth around my little home. All of them are aware of my loving care in their upkeep…

  5. The patterns one can find in tree bark is unending, isn’t it? Unique between species and, if we look close enough, unique between individuals, showing the experiences and scars from years of life like us.

    I’m glad another person understands the magic of trees. At my childhood home, the trees were my best friends, and I spent hours in communion with them. That love continues into the present, and spending time with trees restores my sense of balance and well-being. Thanks so much for the post.

  12. Fingerprints! Exactly. When we were in Yosemite National Park, I swear the Ash trees had eyes and were watching me, and their gentle rustle of leaves spoke to me. Gorgeous photo, Annette.

    Wrote a piece a while ago where an ancient Oak told a young admirer of some happenings that took place under the tree over time. Not all the events were macabre.
    Thanks for your post
