Beech woods

There is something about a group of trees that draws me in amongst them.

"There is always Music amongst the trees in the Garden, but our hearts must be very quiet to hear it." ~Minnie Aumonier

There's a quiet feeling of magic and ancientness.

"Alone with myself
The trees bend to caress me
The shade hugs my heart."
~Candy Polgar

"For in the true nature of things, if we rightly consider, every green tree is far more glorious than if it were made of gold and silver." ~Martin Luther

This stand of beech trees is in the Kasteeltunien
Arcen, Netherlands. An extremely large and very beautiful garden.

Wow, that first picture looks like they are all in formation and I can even see some with faces. Those limbs look so long and reaching. Wonderful!

Aren't beeches just so amazing? I love how they keep a little color in the woods over the winter when the young ones hold their leaves.
