OLD BUT BEAUTIFUL part 3

Isn’t time flying these last days of 2013 ! We had no real Winter days yet, except for a few light night frosts, not that I am complaining !

The sun is shining today so I’ll try and take a few pictures from the garden today. But first I’ll continue with the tree’s series that I started a while back. I met some pretty amazing tree’s on my travels and as I know some of you like tree’s as much as I do I want to share my pictures with you.
