I never did ask them questions. But I always thought about what they might be thinking, or saying to each other. I read a book once about trees that could communicate with people, give them what they need by sacrifice. That started me on wondering all this..

I love love that video, I'm going to wear my red boots tonight now.

I ask trees for inspiration, they make me dream.

Do you ever walk under tree branches and feel like they just gave you a hug? It always makes me stop and say hi x

A huge tree grew in my best friend's backyard when I was little. It was so ancient, we called it the Grandfather Tree. We asked him to watch over us. Watch over us and protect us.

Your pictures are lovely. I ask my special circle of trees for energy and love. They always respond to me kindly.

I only ever whisper secrets into trees. They can rip pain right out of your body if the spirit inside the tree is kind. Trees make good friends but dangerous enemies. xx

I have a magic ancient crab apple tree in my field; it is very wise. I talk to it a lot.
