The Wish Tree #ThursdayTreeLove

tree of wishes

It is almost a year to the day that I saw this wonderful wishing tree in the UC Davis Campus in California. I had gone to visit a nephew who is doing his undergraduate program there. UC Davis is a famous agricultural college and obviously has beautiful trees in the Arboretum which actually looks like a painting.

But the most beautiful tree I saw was this wishing tree.

Yoko's wish

This was a tradition started by Yoko Ono, the widow of the celebrated Beatle John Lennon.

Every now and then a student/staffer takes down the wishes to make place for new ones.

Isn’t that a lovely tradition?

Linking up with Parul’s initiative #ThursdayTreeLove-27where bloggers are invited to share their photos of trees every second and fourth Thursday in the month.


A granny who always sees the humour in life and tries to do things differently. When others make cupcakes, this granny makes banana fritters. When she’s not busy chasing her grandchildren who love making her run around, she indulges in her passions of reading, writing, meeting friends and watching movies. And somewhere between all this she enjoys travelling and cooking!

    Absolutely wonderful tradition! I guess all it needs is a bit of faith which will help a person work for his wish.. This tree (and the wish attached to it) will boost that effort.
