A tree’s shade provides us not just shelter from nature’s elements but provides comfort to the surrounding environment too.
It’s lush green canopy of branches enable the birds and all other living creatures to benefit from its soothing shade. A tree’s symbolic analogy comes from its very existence in our life.
From the leaves on the branches that provides us the shade, to the roots that reflects the importance of being grounded and humble, the tree is a reminder of what we are privileged to enjoy. The privileges includes the people in our life – the kind unsung loyal heroes who care for our wellbeing and the individuals who taught us valuable lessons. As a woody perennial plant, it is also a gentle reminder to us about the extent that we offer shade and support to those we know and we don’t know.
