My love of Trees
“Trees are poems that the earth writes upon the sky.” — Kahlil Gibran
I don’t need to travel to enjoy the serenity and awe of trees. Midsummer in my yard is the time for the white and black oaks and hickories to be in their glory. So I decided to write this entry in my blog to share all the quotes I love about trees and photos that I hope will generate some of the enjoyment ip that I get to experience alive.
