I love trees. Each one has its own characteristic and I adore all of them. The first three photos were taken at University of California at Berkeley and the last one was at Somerby Golf club at Byron, Minnesota.

      Thanks, Sreejith. Yes, different personality. 😉 The first one has a lot of internal struggles; second is lovely, almost over protective, 3rd is confident, independent, the 4th maybe they were a couple in their previous life? 😉 Helen

          Good morning, Sreejith. You have a wonderful day too! I often amazed at how Internet has changed our lives. It’s so nice to be able to make friends who lives so far away. 😉 Helen

            This forum allows us to break all cultural and social barriers and lets us share our thoughts and creative work.

            After joining this forum, my whole perspective about people from far away countries got changed and now I can surely say that we all are same. In software terms, there is only small changes in application layer 🙂

    I love the personalities you gave the trees, Helen! I went back to look at them again, and yes, you have matched their personalities perfectly! What kind of tree is the first one? So intriguing.

      Good morning, Cee. I am glad you like them. I have to ask my daughter… do leaves fall out in that area? 😉 I thought only MN (I am kidding, of course.) Ha. Helen

    Hi Helen, gorgeous trees, I love them too. They transmit power, energy and make me feel grounded. I love to give hugs to them, and feel all of their energy going from the roots to the leaves. I wrote a post about it, I think you were away, here is the link, in case you’d like to have a look.

    I have to agree with you about trees. They do seem to have personalities. The second photo in particular is really intriguing! Protective was a good way to describe it 🙂

      Good morning, Michael. I think you are right. They have wonderful smells, right? It took me a while to figure out that good smell was coming from trees 😉 Thanks for visiting. Having a great day! Helen

        Good evening, Helen. We are surrounded by hundreds are varieties of eucalypts here in Australia. They grow in deserts, on mountains and in the snow, and are all shapes and sizes. They survive bushfires and are some of them are a food source to koalas. They have some of the best bark I have seen on trees. The timber gathered from them is a hardwood and tends not to be used in building anymore. However, it is a perfect candidate for wood chipping, which needs to be controlled. Cheers, Michael

          Michael, I didn’t realize that you live in Australia, too. We have so many wonderful bloggers there. Amazing.
          Anyway, I was going to tell you that the first time I saw eucalypts in California, if I remember it right, my friend told me that they were gifts from Australia. I remember thinking how nice that country was. 😉 Take care, Helen
