I love trees, I find them so fascinating and beautiful and when I saw this article I felt I really wanted to share it with all my friends here in our wonderful secret moon garden......I hope you enjoy it as much as I did!
Trees are the oldest and the largest living things on earth. Some are weird, some extraordinary, some gorgeous, and some shaped by the human hand to fascinate and amuse. Please enjoy these images–or better yet, take a walk in the woods and greet them in person with appreciation.
