This past weekend we went to the Norfolk Botannical Gardens to see the azaleas, and I came across these two trees. They fascinated me because they were nearly mirror images of each other, standing stately and tall with branches just on one side of each of their trunks. Because they were so close together when they were growing, the side closest to each other was devoid of branches. It is as if these two trees complete each other. They make me think of a good marriage. Two people growing side by side, completing each other.

I agree. They remind me also of two people whose love gave them the ability to be a pillar of strength for each other through the years. Inspiring ….thank you.
Thanks so much for visiting, Island Traveler. I love your comment about the two tree people being a pillar of strength for each other. Good analogy. Thank you.
Really lovely. Great photo for the “Two Subjects” theme. Two that are like one. Thanks for sharing.
Thanks for commenting, Rufina.
Beautiful photo! I admire trees. They complete and support each other, they also need a little space to grow too…
Yes,Amy, the best relationships give partners space to grow. You are so right.

Great example, Susan. Good comparison, completing each other.
Thanks, Patti. Azaleas are fading at the Botannical Gardens, but rhododendrons should be flowering soon.
Nice picture you romantic you.
From one romantic to another, Al.
I’ve got some Bonsais that look exactly like these trees. Smaller of course, but the same thing in miniature looks good.
You should take a picture of them and send it to me. I’d love to see them, GCB.
Love the picture and the thought. Obviously you and hubby are still bonded at the core to have seen these threes through those eyes. How blessed you both are!!
Thanks, Carol. Yes, we do feel like those trees sometimes—lopsided!
WOW! Love the analogy and the thought behind it. Great photo too! Thinking of you and hoping you are doing well… about to go take my first walk of the day. Have a good one… BTW, love Azalea gardens in Norfolk, lived there when we were first married. Thanks for the post which also brought back many memories and the analogy just capped it off! DAF
How neat that you once lived in Norfolk, DAF! I’m not seeing any progress this week, and it’s discouraging. At least I haven’t gained anything. Took a thirty-minute walk with my neighbor this morning, but I walked three miles yesterday. Still on Paleo.

The trees look like they are embracing and at the same time facing the world together. Plus they look inviting to climb into and take a rest from a safe, high perch. (I love tree-climbing)
They really are quite magnificent trees, Adela. So unusual.
What a wonderful analogy. Curiously, we have all known or read about couples who grow to look alike. Lovely photo.
Thanks, Georgette. George has more grey hair than I do, but we’re both short.
