OLD BUT BEAUTIFUL part 1

I have so many pictures of old but beautiful tree’s that I decided to make a few blog post about them. I love tree’s, they can be so beautiful !!! I don’t understand why some people nag about falling leaves, they want to live in the country, they want a garden but they can’t stand a few fallen leaves on their grass or in the border. Most tree’s here in Belgium have 4 seasons, they are bald in Winter, in Spring they get fresh new leaves, in Summer they give us shade and in Autumn they get nice colours and fruit or nuts or beautiful seedpods, the birds need the tree’s, the insects need the tree’s and also other wildlife need tree’s in order to survive, they purify the air for us, what more do you want ?! Yes they drop their leaves in Autumn and they give you a bit of work but that is a nice and free workout, in the gym you pay lots of money for a workout !
