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.”

    1. 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!!!

  3. Magic Faraway tree πŸ™‚ 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.

    1. 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!!!

  4. 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.

  5. 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. πŸ™‚

    1. 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!
