Hugging Trees

There were three birch tress standing together in the Tiergarten in Berlin. I hugged one of them on my birthday last September. This is the tree that was cut down soon after! Who made the decision it had to go? No idea. I remembered this tree hugging picture because yesterday I published another tree hugging picture which found great response.

Here's the tree I hugged yesterday. I hope nobody is going to cut it down!

    1. Hi, Renee, thanks for the visit. I just had a look at some of your writing. What you write about your arrival in Paris for instance was very interesting for me. Also what you write about characters in a novel.
      Yea, maybe the leaning of the tree was seen as a problem.

    1. I don’t think the tree was sick, Mary-Ann. Maybe it had to go because it didn’t grow as straight as the other two trees? Or maybe the three trees were growing too close together and this is why one had to go? Who knows what the reason for the cutting out may have been.
      All the trees in Tiergarten Berlin look pretty healthy these days. So I don’t think they have a problem with pollution.
      Berlin is a city with lots of trees and lots of waterways (rivers, canals and lakes). We loved to go for walks in the Tiergarten park. The little apartment we rented was right at the edge of Tiergarten. Peter went for lots of runs there too, usually early in the morning.

  2. Beautiful. I remember hearing of “tree huggers” and how they were derogatorily regarded as useless hippies. But I get it – I truly get it. It’s wonderful.
