Time we got in on the act, we thought...
We post every day throughout the year, on Facebook, Twitter and Google+ and, after only one day, our lovely posts, that we sweated over, debated over, loved and hated...are gone....
well.... not any more.....welcome to our first compilation....
- our top ten trees from this year!
As you probably know, we love trees, and have posted a fair number over the year, we had to discipline ourselves to get it down to ten and our first rule to help with this was that it had to be a single tree, and have some character, a reason for inclusion. It also had to be one of our photos, a tree we'd personally seen. The internet is full of jaw-dropping amazing trees, it is important to us that our trees were witnessed by us...if you see what I mean...but, there is one exception, one that we just couldn't resist including.....everything should have at least one exception......
Here's our short list of ten, if you follow us on any of our other social sites, some or all may be familiar to you, where we can, we've included a link to the original post,
should you wish to view it with comments etc.....
We hope you enjoy our small selection.... in no particular order....
1.The Wonderland Tree
This had to be included. We all loved this tree. Like a tardis it was even bigger inside than it looks from the outside. Easily big enough to accomodate any self-respecting hermit and all his/her mod cons. It also looks a little like a giant face.....
3.Fairy Castle Tree
We thought this old, decaying tree looked like a fairy castle,
or an old man of the woods, or an Ent. What do you think?
4.Drunken Couple Tree
We loved the feeling of this one, it feels like a gloriously happy,
slightly tipsy couple on their way home from a good night!
5.Old Man of the Woods
This is the exception. This evocative picture was kindly shared with us on Facebook from Brian Abnett. Sadly he doesn't know where it came from, and neither do we.
If you do, please tell us!
Descriptions range from Swap Thing, Hagrid, the Green Man, an Ent, old man of the woods through to an army sniper.
You could say 'that's not a tree, it's a root,' but we wouldn't be listening.
6.Tree at Sunset
Sadly, we don't have the original post link.
8.Wizard's Cape Tree
10. Dancing Tree
Onward and Upward and into the new year!
