Trees! Trees! Trees! Trees!

On this hot and steamy day in Virginia (the state), Virginia (the person) is contemplating the calm beauty of trees – and their cool shade! As a tree groupie of the highest order, Virginia has been inspired by the grandeur of trees during travels to sundry places. So, today here are pics of inspiring trees and quotes to contemplate…

    What an uplifting post, Virginia! Love the trees and the quotes. I’m probably partial to the ones with water included though!

    • Virginia says:

      Thank you, Debbie. I also like trees by water (have a few more of those pics to share that didn’t make the cut…) It’s so amazing how big trees can be, like Angel Oak in SC that is ginormous!! 👀🌳🤪🌳👀

    Beautiful trees & quotes …
    with their roots
    firmly in the earth
    and their crowns
    exploring the sky!
