Thematic Photographic - # 295 Trees and Branches

Carmi, is calling for Trees and Branches.

What could be more perfect than these three unique branches shooting straight up! 
Can you see them?

"Life without love is like a tree without blossoms or fruit."  -  Khalil Gibran

I'm so excited that we've finally been gifted by blossoms!  My only regret is that, we didn't plant more of these lovely trees.

What wise thing I have learned from trees is, "Notice that the stiffest tree is most easily cracked, while the bamboo or willow survives by bending with the wind." -  Bruce Lee

I sneezed three times, just arrowing down through your pictures.

I don't like bamboo (I'm not a Panda).

Love the elegant branches, standing straight and up. And I adore the quote you shared: yes, Nature (and us) do better and are happier when we remember to be flexible!

The blossoms are blooming at the relief of the critters who were looking for some!

That first one is really magical - what tree are the blossoms on?

Gilly said...

Beautiful shots - I love the cherry (?) blossom - especially the vertical shoots where it has been pruned! You can' keep a good tree down!

Wonderful photos! I love blossoms on trees. We don't have many in this Northern part of North America. The best to see are orchards of apple blossoms!

Thank you Karen and I love your comments and quotes.

That first shot is magical, Karen.
