I probably say this in every other post, but I really love all the nature around Philadelphia. It’s a great perk of living in the city, and that’s why it was #8 on the 11 Things I’ve Learned Living in Philadelphia post! One neat thing about all the greenery around Philadelphia is the variety. In North Carolina, I was used to most of the trees being pine trees, so it’s really nice to see all different types around Philadelphia. And since Philadelphia is such an old city, a lot of the trees are pretty old and big.
I haven’t done a black and white post in a while since the spring and summer are so bright and colorful around Philadelphia, so I thought I would go back to black and white for this post so you can really notice the texture of the trees! Texture is one of my favorite things about all the old trees in the city, and I really enjoyed finding interesting trees for this post.
Disclaimer: I’m not an arborist so I don’t know what kind of trees these are, I just thought they were neat looking!
I also really love all the park benches around Philadelphia!
This tree really looks like a painting!
I love all the bumps and ridges on this tree
I stole this from my Philly Secret Garden post, but I wanted to show that since Philadelphia is so old, there are lots of large cemeteries around with lots of trees and bushes, too
There are some really interesting roots on the older trees!
I’m sure I will take plenty more pictures of trees around Philadelphia, so keep an eye out for that in the future! Do you have a favorite park or green spot in Philadelphia that I should check out? Comment below! 🙂
