Weekly Photo Challenge: Two Subjects

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.

  2. 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.

    Beautiful photo! I admire trees. They complete and support each other, they also need a little space to grow too…

    Nice picture you romantic you.

    I’ve got some Bonsais that look exactly like these trees. Smaller of course, but the same thing in miniature looks good.

  13. 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!!

  14. 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.

  16. 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)

  17. What a wonderful analogy. Curiously, we have all known or read about couples who grow to look alike. Lovely photo.
