This post is a thank you to people who plant trees. Trees for pure enjoyment, not for the fruit they yield or for the use they have when they are chopped down or felled. Trees that are planted for their beauty, for the shade they give and that make the landscape a prettier place.
I love places where there are a variety of trees all growing happily together in a small area. Magnolias, pine trees, fir trees, and lots more.
A friend of mine likes to hug trees. She says you have to close your eyes and think of the tree growing up to the sky and the roots going down into the ground and feel at one with the earth and the sky, so try it today, maybe when no-one is looking.
