Dominic and Sentient, these photos of old trees astound me. Just look the many trunks of that 4,000 year old gingko and the huge 2,000 year old trunk in Africa!.

Thanks for the tree pictures, Dominic and Sentient- they're wonderful!

It makes me feel better too.

I have a few old live oaks on my property with philodendrons, bromiliads and orchids growing on or hanging from them.  I love my trees and their twisting branches and the Spanish moss which hangs from them.  Of course they are unaware of history, but I know they are aware of at least the watering they get on a regular basis, which is something that people before me neglected to do.  I'd like to think that they know I care about them, but that just makes me feel better.

Dominic,

You have found the way to my heart!  I love massive old old trees.  No idea there was such a specimen in Africa.  Beautiful!

Imagine the history that's happened during that tree's life!  

While on old trees, here's one in China.  4000 y/o ginkgo.  I would say anything over a few hundred years is beyond my ability to comprehend.

Neat patterns Joan, but a lover of going barefoot would have to watch his step. :)

A beauty, Joan!

I love hellebores for all the reasons you mention. They self sow and easy to transplant the wee ones. I didn't know they are toxic. I will  wear gloves. We still have snow, but as soon as it is gone, I will cut off last year's leaves, retrieve any babies I want, and enjoy the blossoms until they get covered by leaves about spring equinox. They remain upright, standing proudly, and one has to hunt down in the growth to find any flowers. However, the green is so pretty, I don't mind.
