Petra Olsen's Garden

This is Petra Olsen's old tree, hollow and sweet. Petra used to own the old house where the tree is part of a cute and wild little garden. I found a paper in the house with her salary at one point, NOK 5, about a dollar. It was not that long ago. Things were not grand, but Petra was kind. It is a blessed place.

Love is the answer and you know that for sure

Is this at your house? I think it's wonderful to inherit anothers makes the garden even more special.

Yes, my partner and I own it together. It needs serious rehbilitaton, we got our work cut out for us, but it is the sweetest place and the garden is all Petra, which is something we really love.

A lovely photograph. A tree close to the house on my farm was injured just this way, by lightning; but it had given shelter for so long, we were glad to be able to save it. I do not think we ever own a tree.

Beautiful presentation.

Glad you could save the tree. No, I don't think we don't own trees, nor the land. Everything is very much it's own creature. We must take what we need from the land in sensible moderation and give back every thing we can. Thank you. Have a good Sunday!
