Entangled #ThursdayTreeLove

A noonday walk on a cloudy day about to turn sunny and mild.

A church courtyard.  My guest photographer and I stepped in, and were amazed by the shrubs and trees in bloom.
These are two Korean dogwood (Cornus kousa) trees, one white, one pink, entangled and blooming together in love.

Did you know about the Christian symbolism of the dogwood? It isn't accidental you find them in so many church courtyards in our area of upstate New York.

A fitting photo for #ThursdayTreeLove, sponsored by Parul at Happiness and Food.  Parul writes:  If you would like to play along, post a picture of a tree on your blog and link back to this post. Next week, I will link your posts on my blog and spread some love. Let’s come together to appreciate the beautiful nature around us. 

Will you play?


  1. A great idea- love seeing tree-pictures- and hiking in the forrest. Saw this on other blogs too- might join in. Didn't know this tree- so learned something new today:-) Thanks:-)

  2. You answered a question for me. (No, I didn't ask you, either!) One that I'd had for some 60+ years! Thanks.

  3. Beautiful how the two colours of the flowers blend in together in there. :)

  4. So beautiful! That just puts me on the right foot for the day. :)

  5. No, I didn't know anything about the symbolism.

  6. When we were in Yosemite there was white Dogwood everywhere. It is so lovely, yet fragile and graceful.
