Some Photos of Magnificent Old Trees from a visit to Sydney’s Royal Botanic Gardens on Wednesday

Here are a few of the photos I took on Wednesday on a visit to the Royal Botanic Gardens on Wednesday with a group of friends.  These ones are specifically of very old trees, but I will be posting others soon.

 

Trees are poems the earth writes upon the sky, We fell them down and turn them into paper,
That we may record our emptiness.”
Khalil Gibran
