Hug a Tree


If it hadn't been for a comment that Grace (Perth Daily Photo) left on my site yesterday, I would not have known that today is Love a Tree day. I looked it up and sure enough, loving a tree is one of the designations for May 16th.    So I encourage you to do like this Northern Mockingbird, give a tree a hug today.  If you are not into hugging, an appreciative and admiring glance will also work.

It's always a good day to love a tree! Mockingbirds are the best. They're so talented.

That mockingbird seems quite alert!

Hugging a tree is very therapetic; ask any bird!! I haven't been commenting for a few days because of a family emergency. Go here for explanation: http://visualstpaul.blogspot.com/2016/05/memorial-for-my-sister.html

I probably shouldn't tell you this, but as per your advice and Grace's advice, I went out this morning and hugged a tree on the back of our property. Well, I almost stepped on a snake, I got into some poison ivy, a crow crapped on my head, but I persevered and hugged a little tree. As I walked back to the house, I noticed I had some pieces of bark on my shirt.

When I entered the house, my dog, a very smart Dalmatian, looked at me and said "Where have you been and what is all that stuff on your clothes?"

I said, "Bark."

He said, "Woof, woof!"

I love to hear a Mockingbird! I still haven't hugged a tree today but have looked with awe at some flowering crabapple trees! ;-)

Thanks for sharing this info and great photo of the mockingbird!
I walked today in our local forest park and did enjoy the trees!

Jacob is one funny guy.

I'll go out right now and hug a tree. Carefully.

If you do it, just be sure it's not a Saguaro.

In my world, every day is love a tree day.
