Love Graffiti

In Paris, there is a wall named "Le mur des je t'aime." The wall is a monument dedicated to love erected in the romantic garden of the Square Jehan Rictus Place des Abbesses in Paris Montmartre. With over 311 written declarations in 250 different languages, I love You : The Wall has become a meeting place for lovers. I saw it in Paris but can't blog it because this is not Paris... but... Love is here in Miami too. Here are some great declarations of love expressed in graffiti and posted in a very unique and beautiful place: the trunk of an Albizia niopoides, which is the largest and most elegant of about 150 species of the Albizia trees, which is related to the Rain Tree. This one is in Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden, and although pretty much forbidden, lovers have found the way and the courage to carve their love declarations on its trunk. If you can find your name here, you know that someone does love you deeply. Click on the photo to enlarge it. You can never tell what you can find.
