“Between every two pines is a doorway to a new world.”
I’ve always loved pine trees. Here near the Carolina Coast, we have loblolly pines and long leaf pines. David and I walked among these evergreens with our dog Marley on my December birthday hike at Carolina Beach State Park. If you stand quietly between the pines, you can feel the doorway to a new world.

Beautiful JoAnna… Tree’s are Magical, and I always connect to those great ‘Standing Ones’ whose roots go deep, and who have watched decades pass .. As communities change, yet they stand tall and proud, giving us our every breath…
Much love and so enjoyed your photos ❤

Yes! Trees are Magical! Thank you for these beautiful and true words of wisdom, Sue. “….giving us our every breath.” ❤

I’ve always loved the look of the pines in the Carolinas and thought it was interesting how different they looked from the trees where I grew up in NJ. My view was mostly from the highway, however, lol. I appreciate you sharing these beautiful pictures!

Thank you, Amy. I’m glad you liked the pictures. I’ve found that pines look different in NC mountains compared to the coastal areas. It makes sense that adapting to climates and geography are more important than state lines. 🙂

Perfect! I want to hang out in that doorway for a while 🙂

Me too! I just found that quote this morning and look forward to slowing down and feeling the tree energy.

Such enchanting photos of pine trees, JoAnna! Thank you for sharing them. ❤
The sandy path among the pines looks very inviting, a great place to walk on your birthday or any other day! I liked the photo of looking into the treetops. It reminded me of a painting I once made and hung above my bed that made me feel as if I were lying on the ground.
I have decorated my house with pine cones and sea shells, mementos of good times spent outdoors.

Thanks, Cheryl. I’m so glad you found the pine photos enchanting. I wish I could get some photos of the pine needles glistening. I bet you know what I mean. This park is a great place to walk except it can get hot and buggy in the summertime. The pinecones and seashells sound lovely. It’s nice to bring mementos of outdoors indoors. I have a lot of earth and sky colors in my house. Having a painting like that over your bed is a wonderful idea!

Superb photos JoAnna. The tree trunks are absolutely straight branching high up. Looks amazing.. like a painting. Very few species in our region grow in this manner.

Thank you, Archana. You’ve made me realize they are shaped a bit like flowers. So many wonderful shapes in the world of trees!

Gorgeous pine tree pics, Joanna!
I can relate to these tall beauties.
My brother and I grew up in the hills of NE India and we had two such imposing pines on either side of the entrance to our beautiful home in the college campus where we lived the most part of our childhood…that feeling of standing on the doorway to the world is all too familiar.
Thank you for sharing this lovely post.

I’m glad you liked my pine tree pics, Esha. Thank you for sharing that image of those pines on each side of your entrance – I can imagine how wonderful that would be, perhaps like benevolent guardians.

HI Jo-Anna, these are lovely pictures. I love the smell of pines.
January 26, 2023 at 9:59 pm
Thanks, Robbie. I love their smell, too!

I just read about the loblolly, and their importance to wildlife. A beautiful tree. I would love to be on that sunny, sandy path walking among them right now. Alana ramblinwitham

Thank you for caring. It’s a wonderful path, especially in the cooler months. I hope you have a good weekend, Alana.
