“He that plants trees loves others beside himself.” From Gnomologia: Adagies and Proverbs (1732)
I took this photo in Scotland when I was there in 2008. I’ve always dreamed of living somewhere with my own tree-lined road just like this. Thanks to the person (long ago) who planted these beautiful trees.
“The tree which moves some to tears of joy is in the eyes of others only a green thing that stands in the way. Some see nature ridicule and deformity, and some scarce see nature at all. But to the eyes of the man of imagination, nature is imagination itself.”
From a letter written by William Blake (1757 – 1827) English poet, artist
