The Gallery Trees

Tara wants Trees for this week's The Gallery.  Trees, you have to love them because they have so many possibilities.  The best tree I have ever found is in Ilam, Derbyshire.  A huge beech tree which a whole family can hide under.  Ilam has the most stunning backdrop of colourful trees in Autumn.  But what these photos show is that trees just don't stop giving.  There's den building:



Or our latest favourite, pretend campfire making:



Or the woodworm holed, worn Victorian kitchen table which is inspiring the short story I am writing:


To the pages I am scribbling the story on:


Trees are great.  We need to protect them.

More trees this way:

Love this post! Yes, trees are so inspiring. I enjoyed walking in my garden taking photos of the trees today and watching the birds. I haven't had a chance to do a post yet, going to be hard to choose which photos to use!

Here here! I get very attached to trees and get very sad when all the neighbours round me keep chopping them down. Vital to maintain wildlife and the environment.

Wow, come over all tree huggin' hippy :) x
