I have a problem. I really like trees. I don’t know how this happened. I mean, I care about the environment but I’m not exactly into botany. I don’t know the names of trees. I can’t even keep them alive if I’m really honest with myself. I don’t even spend all of my spare time looking at them. It is a little bit of an obsession that has crept up on me. I think I just really like the colour green. Which helps.
So you can imagine my joy when we were in South Korea and Japan (and even Singapore). Trees. Everywhere. Beautiful trees. If you were to ask me to sum up the scenery in one word, I’d say trees. I love the trees. The greenery. OK, so that’s more than one word. Whatever. Which surprised me because if you had asked me what I thought the scenery would be like before the trip, I would have probably thought of cityscapes. Skyscrapers, apartment living, the occasional cherry blossom (at the right time of year). Maybe a river or two.
When we got there I could not stop myself from taking photos. It’s an addiction and you (and Facebook) are lucky that I did not post every single one. OMG everything was so beautiful and green, you guys.
Really really really old trees. Trees on cliffs. Trees in the middle of RESTAURANTS. Trees at temple sites. Trees near the beaches. Trees in the middle of bustling cities. Trees on mountain tops. Trees in parks. Trees trees trees. That’s a lot of beautiful foliage everywhere, y’all.
Does anyone else love trees as much as I do? Are you another unlikely tree fan?
