On the flowing backwater stretches of Kerala, nestled in captivating greenery, amidst lush paddy fields, stand these tall coconut trees, swaying gently to the winds as the cruise boats pass by one after another. I remember one such trip, being led on a cruise boat by a gentleman —a local of the village in Alleppey, listening to his stories, soaking in the quiet and taking back a plethora of memories to cheer forever. Trees can give you so much peace, in spite of being so inconspicuous. So much of what you see in Kerala are these Coconut trees. They are everywhere and they make you feel a part of the ecosystem when you’re surrounded by so many of them, as you see in this picture of Alleppey.
Joining Parul Thakur with her post based on the theme, #Thursday Tree Love –where she brings you her tree picture and links to other beautiful ‘tree’ posts from the week before. If you would like to play along, post a picture of a tree and link it back to her post. Let’s appreciate Nature around us!

Oh, thank you so much, Angela. I can imagine all those places with such amazing greenery and beauty! One visit us never enough-is what I tell everyone when they think of visiting Kerala. Truly God’s own country!
Beautiful! The reflection of trees in water looks great too.
Thank you so much, Ramya. It does…it is truly serene.
Very beautifully clicked picture. Everything looks so calm and pure. Water, big trees and reflection all looks so attractive and soothing.
Thank you for your appreciation Minakshi. The place is such, it brings a lot of peace and tranquility to oneself just by being there.
Beautifully captured! A coconut tree looks quite simple, with no branching yet just looking at it is so calming!
Lovely photo. The water, the trees, and the reflection. Such a great shot, Esha. Thank you for joining.
