Trees are poems that earth writes upon the sky

quote by Kahil Gibran

This is one of my most favorite trees. She sits on a busy street by a church, near a monument and across from many shops.

She provides a wide area of shade and shares many shadows with everything around her.

Thanks for sharing your favourite tree with us, Dianne! It does make very cool shadows. :)

The Roll of Honor looks so nice where it stands - the shade may evoke the sadness, but the sun on the Roll adds the brightness they brougt to those they loved and the freedom we still enjoy as a result of their loss. It is really beautiful, and lovely for SSS!

That is a lovely tree, with such a full shape. She has been around for a while!

Like Ralph I also like the shadows on the honor roll from World War II.

The town looks so pretty.

Lovely shadow scenery!

Elizabeth said...

Sounds strange, but that tree kinda makes me think of a loving grandma, and her shadows are her arms lovingly reaching over all that come around her. Lovely photos.
