Standing Alone but Proud

Good Tuesday, tree lovers!

Here's another post for #treetuesday...

These photos were taken in a small village in the South region of Portugal, a little town called Arraiolos. This is a very quiet little town and the weather is usually very hot here, so it's a perfect place for resting.

In such a hot town it's indispensable to have some cooler spaces to hide away from the sun... and what better way to get a shade than with a tree?

Even a lone tree is quite important in this town, so this tree stands proud at the centre of this tiny square. Although it is completely by herself, her shade pretty much covers the entire square. 😎

Depending on the hour those two benches will be under the sun... or under the shade of the tree. 😊


All through the town you'll find posters with inspirational sentences made by well known personalities. Since Arraiolos is not very far from Spain, some of these messages are from Spanish people.

In this square, these two messages stood out:

  • Poisa amor em tudo o que vês. ~ Rita Redshoes (Portuguese Rock Singer)
  • ¿Será que el mar es salado de toda la gente que entra y llora? ~ Gemma Galán (Spanish TV Anchor / Actress)

In English these are translated to:

  • Land love in everything you see.
  • Could it be that the sea is salty because of everyone who enters and cries?

I think this is a very nice idea and turns the town a little more interesting and beautiful.

I hope you liked these shots. Leave a comment down below, if you wish.

You need to stake more BEER (24 staked BEER allows you to call BEER one time per day)

I liked the second one, that's why it's salty. And yeah, she stood out because she got all the attention. It's nice dating time there. lol

Shady trees are life savers, especially in places that are always hot.

Yes, that's it. These little towns in the south of Portugal are usually gorgeous but very hot. It ain't an easy place to live in the Summer... unless you have a swimming pool! 🤭

Pretty.
Love trees!
My husband proposed under some ancient red woods in grove of titans northern California.

And I love the idea of quotes written throughout the town.

I love your walking around (landscape, urban, or however someone would like to call it) photography, even when it's the cat hidden in the cornfield which I can not spot no matter how badly I want to win the challenge. 😉😃

P.S.
Hope you are OK, and doing well?! Long time no see!

Ah, you still remember that contest? 🤭

I'm fine, thanks. I haven't been very active lately, I'm just posting once or twice a week.
I see you're kind of resting, too... and there's no post for me to upvote, so here's a little tip on your comment instead! 😉

hahaha - Yes, I still remember it. It was fun! 😃
Yeah, I'm kinda resting too. Seems like commenting around and engaging with people that way suits me better than publishing posts by myself.
However, thank you for the tip! 😊

Nice image, I wonder what was going through the mind of whoever planted this tree😅. Probably after a very hot, stressful day. A great idea
