Thursday Tree Love at our Neighborhood Park


“Trees are in love with the earth, the earth is in love with the trees. The birds are in love with the trees, the trees are in love with the birds. The earth is in love with the sky, the sky is in love with the earth. The whole existence exists in a great ocean of love. Let love be your worship, let love be your prayer.” …Osho

I’m thankful to be walking our dog Marley more regularly since I’m feeling better. Our late afternoon jaunt takes us to the little park a few blocks away. Today’s tree love shares some of my favorite trees living in the park.

The first group of trees were featured in a previous post when the middle tree was cut down a few years ago. It was not doing well and leaning low over the playground. Now, the stump has aged and serves as a canvas for carving initials.

The next gallery includes more of my favorites from the park. I don’t see the usual option to add captions, so you if you click each photo, you get the titles I saved them into my laptop with. The first photo includes my husband David and Marley. The last one shows a long root from the bench tree running along the surface of the earth hinting at a vast underground network.


Thursday Tree Love is hosted by Parul Thakur on the second and fourth Thursday of each month.

  9. Lovely photos, JoAnna! ❤ Today I took a long walk around our neighborhood for the first time since Hurricane Ian. It is very sad how many trees we lost, but quite a few magnificent oak trees did survive. Those trees, stripped bare of their leaves, within three weeks, had new leaves and are in bloom as if it were spring. Nature is amazing! 🙂

  10. Love the trees and the pictures. The sky, that bench and that long root. They say that when roots are visible, it means that tree is growing. So it’s a good sign and so glad you shared. See you back again, JoAnna. Always grateful to have you join. Also, love that quote. May steal it soon 🙂
