Taschentuchbaum--what an appropriate name!
Nice collection of fine trees.
No Tannenbaum? :)

Lovely collection of tree shots for the day. I love the last one -- looks like I feel when I get up some mornings!

Have a great day!

I love the German name, so fitting as well, it definitely looks as if there are a lot of Taschentücher in the tree!

If that's the flower from the handkerchief tree, it's gorgeous!

Great Trees! I particularly liked the 'dove' tree. I don't think I've seen one of those before!

The handkerchief tree is beautiful, I've never seen one before. It's wonderful to see trees in flower now. I have a tree, also!

I love the name of the handkerchief tree in German!It rolls off the tongue!

As is often the case, the "ugly" tree, the last one, is somehow the most beautiful. I also like the way the pine seems to be growing out of the rocks.

These are fascinating trees! Each one a lesson in same/different! Terrific!
