BIG FIG I love this fig tree in one of the local parks. It has inspired this week’s quote. Hope you all have a stress-free happy week… “If you would know strength and patience, welcome the company of trees.” Hal Borland 0.000000 0.000000 Share this:ShareFacebookTwitterEmailTumblrPinterestLike this:Like Loading...

LikeLike Lots of wise people out there saying lots of wise things, slpmartin. Wish I was one of them 😉 LikeLike A lovely old thing, that tree – strong, resilient, enduring of wild weather and blazing sun – a good quote for the week, Selma. 😀 LikeLike Some of those figs are quite old, Bluebee. I don’t know if you know the big fig in St. Stephen’s Cemetery in Camperdown (Church St.) but that dates from 1848. Just incredible!!! LikeLike Magic Faraway tree 🙂 Terrific quote and a beautiful tree (I would give it a hug – suppose that makes me a treehugger) – gardening is like that – you have to have the patience and wait for the fruit and the flowers and the bigger plants, but well worth the wait. The light in the tree is amazing Selma – you got it right at the right moment. LikeLike Can you believe that light, Gabe? I was so excited when I saw it. I’m a treehuger too in the hugging sense. I get such solace from trees. Beautiful things!!! LikeLike beautiful – i imagine trees observe an approaching tree-lover with green and wooden welcome the way only trees can do. they see/feel/touch in their tree ways, steadfast and beautiful and sort of a larger tougher version of or our veins, so spreading like branches. lovely to appreciate trees. LikeLike I love what you have just said so much Tipota – a larger, tougher version of our veins. OMG. I love that so much. You have SUCH a way with words 😀 😀 ♥♡ LikeLike I really needed that quote and photo, Selma. It’s been difficult to wait and be patient these days. I do love trees and I am a staunch believer in hugging a tree when the mood strikes. Thankfully, my neighbors know I’m slightly different, so adding that habit to my repertoire doesn’t phase them a bit. 🙂 LikeLike Waiting is hard, Karen. It can really test us. You hug those trees as much as you want. There’s nothing wrong with it. Ha ha. So glad the quote could help a bit! LikeLike That is some tree! Massive! Must be really cool under it. LikeLike It is really cool under it, Roshan. Glorious on a hot summer’s day! LikeLike Gorgeous tree and quote. LikeLike I do love that tree and quote, Squirrel. Thanks for liking them too!!
