Pines, roots, rocks, rosemary and shrubby germander all on a walk along the coast.

‘Behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me , to give every man according as his work shall be. I am Alpha and Omega , the beginning and the end, the first and the last. Blessed are they that do his commandments , that they may eat of the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates of the city….Surely I come quickly. ‘ (All these words given by Jesus ) Amen.

Revelation 22: 13,14 … Jesus’s words from verse 20
Roots and rock…
…rosemary and rock…
…still standing on the rock…

Who leaves the pine-tree, leaves his friend, unnerves his strength, invites his end.

Ralph Waldo Emerson
. ..such a lovely blue view from the tree on the rocks….

It’s as difficult to win love as to wrap salt in pine needles.

Ancient Chinese Wisdom
…roots bare from erosion and trees
in twisted form…

Wild like the wind, in the tall pine trees. I got roots, and I got wings.

…a fascinating leaf flower, Shrubby Germander/Teucrium fruticans…This plant belongs to the mint family and is native to the western and central Mediterranean. It is an evergreen shrub that can grow between 1m high and 4m wide.  Shrubby Germander has velvety white shoots, glossy , aromatic leaves and pale blue flowers.  It likes full sun , well drained neutral to alkaline soil and blooms in summer.
A mug of butterfly lavender…’home is where the heart is ‘ with some flowers.

Few are altogether deaf to the preaching of pine trees. Their sermons on the mountains go to our hearts; and if people in general could be got into the woods, even for once, to hear the trees speak for themselves, all difficulties in the way of forest preservation would vanish.

John Muir.
