Three on Trees


Old School Garden

Big_tree‘Men seldom plant trees till they begin to grow Wise, that is, till they grow Old and find by Experience the Prudence and Necessity of it.’

John Evelyn

‘Trees are the best monuments that a man can erect to his own memory. They speak his praises without flattery, and they are blessings to children yet unborn.’

Lord Orrery to Thomas Carew 15th May 1749

‘Of all the wonders of nature, a tree in summer is perhaps the most remarkable; with the possible exception of a moose singing ‘Embraceable You’ in spats.’

Woody Allen
