re: Old trees, including the hollies by the Gates of Moria

These are so amazingly beautiful and mysterious.

Oh, this is wonderful! It is amazing to think how long these trees have survived and all they have been through! Thank you for sharing!

These are lovely, but where are the Bristlecone Pines! I live just an hour from some of the oldest.

re: Old trees, including the hollies by the Gates of Moria

Those are amazing and truly breathtaking in person. I assume the bristlecone pines have a place in the full book (I missed them too) along with the giant sequoia and a few others I love from the western and southwestern states.

Thanks for sharing, Molly.

Oooooh these are amazing! And the grey shade comes off so well.

(I've seen the ginormous tree at Ta Prohm in person - recall taking lotsa pics)
