“Trees are sanctuaries. Whoever knows how to speak to them, whoever knows how to listen to them, can learn the truth.”
― Herman Hesse
Spotted at Miyajima, Japan, famous for the centuries-old Itsukushima Shrine, located in an island that is an hour’s drive away from Hiroshima. Never before have I seen another tree like this one.
Thursday Tree love is a photo feature hosted on Parul’s blog every 2nd and 4th Thursday of a month. The next edition will go live on March 11, 2021. If you would like to play along, post a picture of a tree on your blog, and link it back to Parul’s post.
A beautifully fascinating tree and a wonderful quote inspiring me to listen and talk to my tree friends.
That’s a lovely one and reminds me of Raintree but a steps version of it. It’s pretty. Thanks for joining, Esha.
I hope to see you around tomorrow. Take care!
wow this looks amazing!!!
What an artistic pattern. I wonder if it was pruned or trained in this way (like a huge bonsai).
Wow! Now I can understand how they find inspiration for Bonsai from Nature! A wonderful quote to match Esha!
Such a massive tree, must be really old.
What an amazing tree…the word that came to mind as soon as I saw your picture was ‘shelter’.
