This week we celebrated Earth Day. Virginia has posted numerous times on the day (click here to read last year’s #EarthDay post) but today here’s a celebration of trees from this tree groupie to tree groupies around the world…

“Be like a tree. Stay grounded, keep growing, and know when to let go.” Anonymous

In springtime trees do their happy green thing, like this Fringe Tree spotted last week in Colonial Williamsburg (front and back view, leaves were doing their happy green dance!)

“Never say there is nothing beautiful in the world anymore. There is always something to make you wonder in the shape of a tree, the trembling of a leaf.” Albert Schweitzer

Spring in the Japanese Garden @ Maymont Park in Richmond, Virginia

Standing under the sprawling branches of Angel Oak on Johns Island (South Carolina) a few years ago was truly a marvel for this tree groupie!

Pink Dogwood spotted last week in Williamsburg, Virginia (the state.)

This is one of Virginia’s favorite tree pics taken @ Banff National Park in Canada. It reminds me of these favorite verses:

“You shall go out in joy and be led forth in peace; the mountains and hills will burst into song before you, and all the trees of the field will clap their hands.” (Isaiah 55:12)

grace, peace & HaPpY trees

    How I love these tree photos, Virginia — particularly the Japanese garden and that Angel Oak. Have you ever hugged a tree? It’s such a fabulous feeling, knowing you’re sharing love with another of God’s “creatures”!

      Debbie, standing under Angel Oak was truly a remarkable experience! The branches just kept going & going… I feel your tree hugging love, we are kindred spirits! 🌳🤗🌳

  4. I share your love for trees-and I so love that verse!

      We tree groupies need to stick together, Michele. That is one of my favorite verses, too. I like to imagine trees clapping their branches with joy! 💜🌳💜
