The gentle giants looking out

The gentle giants looking out

Trees are special to me simply because of their very nature. Trees are magical and powerful. They inspire and allow children's imagination. They are dragons, horses, and castles. They protect from floating lava, from lakes filled with mud-monsters, and falling meteorites. They are the gentle giants looking out, guarding the innocence of a child's imagination. Trees should be accessible to all. Let's look after them.
