These two trees don't form a real symmetry, but thought they were close enough, along with the two benches below.  Chestnut trees, with those conical blossoms. My mother and I used to call them 'ice cream cone' trees, since they reminded us of Dairy Queen's soft-serve ice cream.

It makes for a pleasant image, particularly with those blossoms at full glory.

Sort of an old-fashioned photographic look. The high-saturation, somewhat low-resolution style reminds me a LOT of the slides in Monty Python's "How To Recognize Different Types Of Trees From Quite A Long Way Away" sketch.

They are beautiful—and symmetrical enough to warrant your clever title. :~}
