Today is Hug a tree day! I would be hugging my favourite tree but they cut it down this spring so I'm on the lookout for another tree to hug for today. There are one or two options in the area.
Do you have any idea how much trees do for us? I always hate it when a tree is cut down rather they needed it like this one or not.
On the other side of that fence is a table with two chairs that I like to sit at as I drink my first cup of the day. That tree provided perfect shade but as you can kinda see it is hollow in the middle and had to be cut down so it wouldn't damage the fence or our building in the next big wind storm.
Just a little ways further up the street is a younger tree and it is the one I chose to hug today. Bloody phone wouldn't take a picture of the hug so I has to settle for something almost as good.
A selfie with the tree behind me! As a rule I don't take selfies but when I saw this one come up on my phone screen I thought it was perfect so I snapped it.
I was really glad to see the green leaves today. With the sunshine it became a perfect beginning to what I hope will be a good day.
Hope you get out and enjoy the sun!
