STORY OF A TREE.

We are living in our house for 40 years now and at the beginning there was nothing in the garden apart from rubble and weeds. So we wanted to have some tree’s and shrubs in the back of the garden. One day my husband came home from work with a small seedling he found at the land that surrounded the company he worked for, he just pulled it out of the ground and planted it at the back of our garden. It was just really tiny and we didn’t have much hope this little thing would be come a huge tree. But it was brave and survived many difficulties, one of them being my crazy footballing sons. Now it is a huge tree, really huge and gives shade and harbours birds and squirrels and insects. It turned out to be a European oak tree, their leafs are tiny unlike the ones of the American oak tree and they are not as colourfull as the American oak tree but a few days ago the sun was shining and the leafs looked stunning against the blue sky so I took some pictures.

OUR EUROPEAN OAK TREE IS JUST TOO BIG TO PHOTOGRAPH IN ONE PIECE, THIS IS JUST ONE OF THE BRANCHES
HERE YOU HAVE A CLOSER LOOK AT THE LEAFS

He is always the last tree in the garden to get new leafs in Spring and he is always the last to loose them in Autumn.

In Belgium there is a law that says you can’t remove a European oak tree, not even when you want to build a house on the space the tree is situated. They can get very old.

I hope you’ll have a great weekend. Take care and keep safe !

  1. On a past blog, Martin Luther said, “Even if I knew that tomorrow the world would go to pieces, I would still plant my apple tree.” There is something to be said about watching a tree grow from tiny to toppling. Like kids. Like grandkids. Like family circles. Like flower gardens. I am so happy you get to feel and be part of all of life.

    1. I have a lot of respect for tree’s. We need millions of them to make the world a healthier place but often people can’t stand falling leafs on their lawn so the remove the tree’s in their garden. It makes me so sad.

    1. I know we need to plant millions of tree’s as fast as we can but the trend is getting rid of the tree’s as they shed leafs on the lawn. This makes me angry. If they can’t stand leafs on their lawn they should go and live in a flat high up in the sky, so they don”t get leafs or other “dirt” on their property !

        1. I don’t even have a lawn. When my boys didn’t need the lawn anymore to play football I rearranged my garden and the garden is now full of plants, tree’s and shrubs and a few paths ofcourse so the leafs can fall where they like and protect my plants in Winter 😀
