“Trees are sanctuaries. Whoever knows how to speak to them, whoever knows how to listen to them, can learn the truth. They do not preach learning and precepts, they preach, undeterred by particulars, the ancient law of life.”  (Herman Hesse) - Balquhidder, Scotland – November 2013

i’ve always thought of trees as powerful beings. the aura they exude cannot be compared to most other flora .

Agree completely! If you think that a weed and a tree both grew from a single seed, you realise what incredible ambitions must lurk in the DNA of trees!

Gorgeous! I notice trees more and more and do find them fascinating, a study in life, beauty, power, history.

Thanks :) I always have favourite trees wherever I live – in South Africa it was an umbrella-shaped indigenous coral tree on my drive home from work, and here in London it is an ornamental cherry tree near my office that grows alone among highrise buildings and transforms into a cloud of pink blossoms every Spring.

Suddenly I feel like visiting the Tsitsikamma. I love forests

Ha – yes, so true, it does remind me of Tsitsikamma! I also love forests – they all have their own distinct personality.

Beautiful photo which reminds me of the time we visited the Redwood forest just outside San Francisco, I really want to go back there one day as I now take a better photo and could do the trees justice.

Thank you – and LOL, I thought I was the only one who wished she could go and re-photograph places now that her photography skills/kit had improved!
