A cedar tree grows in my favorite grocery store parking lot. It’s my favorite lot for the trees and their shade more than the groceries. Most new parking lots have zero trees, though I continue to advocate for leaving the mature trees and building around them.
It was funny to see this heating and air conditioning truck parked in an unmarked space to get shade from the cedar tree. Trees definitely help with air conditioning, especially in the summertime.

The shade of trees is so welcome in the summer. I am not sure I’ve ever seen a cedar that big.

Thank you for your comment, Alana and appreciating shade with me. This cedar is a good size. I’ve seen a few this big.

Beautiful! As you say, an airconditioning truck parked under the tree is a strange contrast! Lovely capture!

Thank you! I’m glad you like it and get the contrast.

Nothing like a tree for air conditioning. Except a forest, of course 🙂

Of course! Excellent point about forests! 🙂

Trees are the best air conditiners. This oak truly stands out dear Joanna.

Thank you, Natasha, for reinforcing the good work trees do for us. You lead me to imagine a world full of nature’s air conditioners.
June 12, 2022 at 12:48 pm
Ah! I would give all I have to be part of nature’s air conditioners!
Wrapping all the trees of this precious earth in a warm, grateful embrace.

A wonderful vision, Natasha. I’m embracing them, too. ❤

Such a welcome sight in a parking lot

It certainly is a welcome sight to see a tree in a parking lot.

You know, I never noticed, but you’re right. There are no trees in parking lots anymore. Great pics as always!
June 11, 2022 at 9:29 pm
Thanks, Dave. I hope someone will build a parking lot around trees. Now, I’m going to go look for some.

Cedars also smell so fresh! They grew like weeds in Virginia when I was a child and make lovely Christmas trees. The one in your photo looks very old. We have a few like that in SW Florida. 🙂

I like the smell of cedars, too. One year we cut the top off the one out front for a Christmas tree. Happy to bring back memories!

That’s a lovely tree and what a shade in the Sun for the car too. I haven’t seen Cedar but I would love to see one day 🙂 Thanks for joining JoAnna.

I’m glad you enjoyed the cedar. The smell is wonderful in a woody, earthy way.

That’s truly a lovely tree, giving shade to so many. This pic certainly shows how important are trees, their shade, and the air conditioning they provide.

Thank you for recognizing the importance of shade and appreciating this tree with me!
