Summer is upon the wind
Bees bustle, flowers flirt,
Trees lift up their branches
toward the sun, while
Sheltering all and one

Strolling or resting in a city park,
People drawn out again to
Feel alive and be warmed
by sun and air
All and one

Thanks for stopping by my kitchen,

Have a peaceful Day wherever you may be.

    So it is not only in good old Europe that small or big patches of nature in the city have to go, leaving their place to parking lots or something similar, above or underground… Trees are promised once the digging frenzy is over… And then we get the excuse that there isn’t enough ground left to accomodate tree roots… oops!… Another stone desert for mass events…

    My heart is with you – and I wish you luck,.. I hope that the ‘organizers’ are more reasonable than the ones over here…

      Thanks, Nil. Sad to think that it’s happening everywhere. The Park Board here has a city wide plan to upgrade all the parks. There was no request for input from the surrounding community. The meeting on June 25 will be attended by people who feel like I do.
      The park really is a haven. I have many years of photos from this park.
      More to come.

    Such a magnificent old tree. I love to see these old trees. I hope it will be allowed to grow for many more years.

  3. I love oak trees. I’m not sure if you saw my restaurant report with pictures of that oak that’s over 2,000 years old. I’m just in awe every time I see it!
