I will lead the way”
Dave Grohl

Following up on yesterday’s post about trees, today I present a collection of photos of my favorite tree, the arbutus. Information about this tree and its growing pattern can be found here.

Shall We Dance

One of the things I love most about arbutus is the way it twists and entwines itself around other trees to get to the light and the water.

It’s Own Way

While other trees grow upright it follows its own path!


I Love You!

The original tree hugger! I love how the old bark peels away to reveal its smooth new skin, just like a snake!


Good Morning!

Of course trees talk to each other! The one on the left is just coming in from a swim.


On Golden Pond

Nothing better than a sip of lagoon water!

The colors are always amazing, from deepest reds to brightest greens!

More pics of arbutus here.

Have a great weekend and go out and hug a tree! To all my Canadian followers, have a wonderful Thanksgiving!
