This is the Handkerchief Tree (Davidia involucrata - the dove-tree, pocket handkerchief tree, or ghost tree)! Lots of names 😂 It is my number one favourite tree in the world. It's beautiful & serene. It dances in the breeze. It's romantic & ghostly all in one. It's like a sign of peace. It reminds me of when you hang a note with your wish on from a tree or string...like when you're a kid. It's relaxing, just gazing at it takes you away for a moment 😍 #favourite #white #tree
