Be content with your natural beauty
Drink plenty of water
Let your limbs sway and dance in the breezes
Be flexible
Remember your roots
Enjoy the view!

Guess it is not surprising how many tree quotes and poems there are. Trees are so good for the soul, they all happen to be essential to the air we breathe. We need more trees, so if you can why not sow a seed this year. You may not sit under its shade, but future generations will be grateful to you and nature will be delighted.

If you have a moment today why not share your first (or second) #TreeSquare! July has been a delight so far thanks to all of the trees shared, and there are so many ways in which to share;

  • Trees can be centre square or hidden in the background
  • You could focus on one tree and share a different part of the same tree or its shadow each day
  • Or if you have lots of tree photographs why not create a collage of tree squares, sorted by species or number
  • Yes, it is totally up to you how you share your trees. In fact you don’t even need to share real trees!

The only absolute rule for joining in with Squares is that your photograph must be square in shape! Although I’d love it if you also left a comment on my post, conversations make the challenge so much fun.

  1. Hi Becky B. Yesterday’s post came out as a Writer’s Quotes post, but you know I couldn’t abandon the TreeSquares, don’t you? Do you have some earth-shaking advice from this tree? I would like to know why trees are so relaxing. I will take their advice. They are massive. Never argue with a tree. 🙂

    1. Hee hee that’s so true, and even if the little ones are rough. I banged my head on one of the willows over a month ago, and the scar is still healing!


      1. Oh you are so very sweet. I’ve been wanting to join in (I am so busy!) and just posted another post. I have plans for more too! I try and be creative and am not sure this next one is as good. But it is still so fun to share! Haha, I am my hardest critic!!

  2. It brings tears to my eyes. Really. I have always loved trees and lived amongst them, but I think now I love them even more. I remember my mother used to cry whenever they cut branches from HER trees and now I understand why.

    1. They are such wise words, and yes I can understand why it brings tears to your eyes. Healthy trees need to be allowed to grow
