Embrace

A photo of two trees (one embracing the other) on A Cuban in London's blog reminded me of this photo I took of two juniper trees in our backyard...a living juniper tree wrapped almost completely around a dead tree.



"...make us sing and dance, make faces and give flower bouquets,
trying to be loved. You ever notice that trees do everything
to git attention we do, except walk?"

Perfect quote for the photo. I'm a big fan of Alice Walker. So, you're the link between A Cuban in London and myself? Thanks.

Isn't it wonderful how Nature is so all-consuming, nothing left untouched, but beauty and grandeur on a greater scale.

Charmaine your photo is wonderful. It is really ethereal when you tell about the living tree wrapping itself around the dead one... how interesting and sort of bittersweet. The quote you used was perfect and brought it all to life... really lovely post!
