Embracing Trees

These two trees appear to be embracing but further study
shows that the wider trunk is supporting the thinner, gangly one.
These trees are in the front yard of an organization caled Open Arms,
a pregnancy counseling service in Hendersonville, NC.
One could also interpret this as the older matron giving
support to the younger wild woman - much like
the place of the strong mother in Jamaican society.
Or, you could take it in another direction and consider
it  a rendition of Apollo and Daphne in
Metamorphoses by Ovid.....
