a silent gift of nature.

Friendship Week ~ Third week of August. Aug 20 – 26, 2017

“For years, I’ve charged my batteries on trees. You have to select a special tree friend. When I came out of hospital after a serious operation, I chose a Cedar of Lebanon. Cedar itself comes from the Arabic word meaning strength.” ~ Richard St. Barbe Baker

Friendship is a silent gift of nature..
More old .. more strong..
More deep.. more clear..
More close.. more warm..
Less words.. more Understanding..

Ralph Waldo Emerson speaks thus; We have a great deal more kindness than is ever spoken.

The heart knoweth.

The effect of the indulgence of this human affection is a certain cordial exhilaration.

Our intellectual and active powers increase with our affection.
Let the soul be assured that somewhere in the universe it should rejoin its friend, and it would be content and cheerful alone for a thousand years.

The other element of friendship is tenderness.

Every one must have felt that a cheerful friend is like a sunny day, which sheds its brightness on all around. Sir John Lubbock

A friend may be nature’s most magnificent creation.”

― Ralph Waldo Emerson

“Even a tree adept may prefer to make friends with a single tree of his or her choice. As on entering a crowded ballroom one is drawn to one person, so among trees special friendships are formed and develop through the years.~Richard St. Barbe Baker.
