First, two tree quotations and then some photos from the garden I know the longest.
The true meaning of life is to plant trees, under whose shade you do not expect to sit.
~ Nelson Henderson
(quotation reblogged from Do What You Wish)
A drawing of a tree shows, not a tree, but a tree-being-looked-at.
~ John Berger, “The Sense of Sight”
I wonder if it’s the same if a tree is photographed instead of drawn. Here are some trees from uncle’s garden and some other life forms before the first snow of the season which we just missed. Right now this garden looks completely different (more like it did last year at this time).
