The Grandmother and Grandfather Tree

Magnolia Tree

This is Grandmother and Grandfather Tree; it is a magnolia and I love to see it bloom in Spring. This tree is very friendly and comforting to me; I like to sit in its branches or cuddle-up round its trunk. I also believe that trees are very important and should be protected, after all they are not only a wonderful part of nature, but they are part of a cycle which helps us to take in oxygen. So be kind to trees!
