Lyrics… Sounds great though?
Naega jun sinbareul singo keunyeowa gireul geolgo
Amureohji anhge keunyeowa kiss hago
Naega jun hyangsu ppurigo keunyeoreul pume ango
Nawa haetdeon keu yaksuk ddo dasi hagetjyo

Urin imi neujeotnabwayo
Uri sarang kketnan geongayo
Amu marirado jom naege haejwoyo oh oh oh
Uri jeongmal saranghaetjanha

You're not mine anymore
It hurts,it hurts,it hurts

We have this beautiful tree in our garden!
Almost twice as high as our house!
Called the Cedrus atlantica.


Wij hebben deze prachtige boom in onze tuin staan
hij is ong. een keer zo hoog als ons huis,
genaamd de Atlas Ceder!

Cedrus atlantica is a medium-sized to large tree,
30–35 m (rarely 40m) tall,
with a trunk diameter of 1.5–2 m.
Cedrus atlantica is common in cultivation as an
ornamental tree in temperate climates.
In garden settings, often the glaucous forms are
planted as ornamental trees, distinguished as the
Glauca Group, a Cultivar Group.
There are also fastigiate, pendulous, and
golden-leaf forms in cultivation.
The Atlas Cedar is useful in cultivation because it is more
tolerant of dry and hot conditions than most conifers.
It is used as a street tree, such as Christmas Tree Lane
in Altadena, California


De atlasceder (Cedrus atlantica) is een boom
uit de dennenfamilie (Pinaceae).
De soort komt van nature voor in het
Atlasgebergte in Noord-Afrika, maar wordt
tegenwoordig vaak aangeplant als sierboom in parken
en tuinen. In Zuid-Europa wordt de atlasceder
soms bovendien aangeplant voor het hout.
Een volwassen boom kan tot 40 meter hoog worden.


Many (but far from all) of the cultivated trees
have glaucous (bluish) foliage, more downy shoots,
and can have more leaves in each whorl;
young trees in cultivation often have more ascending
branches than many cultivated Cedrus atlantica.


De kroon van de boom is breed en kegelvormig.
De grote takken hebben een horizontale stand.
Zelden hangen de takken. De boomschors is blad
en donkergrijs. Als de boom ouder wordt, komen er
groeven in de boomschors te zitten en zo vormen
zich grote platen, die afschilferen.
De knoppen zijn glimmend, donkergroen of
blauwachtig groen en hebben een lengte van
1 tot 2 cm. Ze zitten vaak in bosjes van
circa 40 stuks bijeen.

AtlascederCedrus cone 
De mannelijke kegels zijn conisch
en hebben een lengte van 3 tot 5 cm.


Vrouwelijke kegels zijn rechtopstaand en rolrond
met een uitholling aan de top.
Ze rijpen in twee jaar tot een bleke, paarsbruine kleur
en zijn dan 5 tot 8 cm lang.
De schubben vallen af en laten dan de
gevleugelde zaden vrij.

Have a Wonderful Weekend!!!

~Living Root Bridge

root bridge
In the depths of northeastern India,
one of the wettest places on earth, bridges
aren’t built – they’re grown.
 root bridge 
The living bridges of Cherrapunji, India are made
from the roots of the Ficus elastica tree.
This tree produces a series of secondary roots from
higher up its trunk and can comfortably perch atop
huge boulders along the riverbanks, or even in
the middle of the rivers themselves.

In order to make a rubber tree’s roots grow in
the right direction – say, over a river – the Khasis use
betel nut trunks, sliced down the middle and
hollowed out, to create root-guidance systems.

The thin, tender roots of the rubber tree,
prevented from fanning out by the betel nut trunks,
grow straight out. When they reach the other side
of the river, they’re allowed to take root in the soil.
Given enough time, a sturdy, living bridge is produced.

~Time for Music…

This was In 1986 a big hit by Feargal Sharkey
I haven’t heard for many years…
Now hearing it again I still love this sound
from the 80’s
Wonder what he’s doing now?


You little thief
You let me love you
You saw me stumbling
You watched me fall
You left me broken
Shattered and bleeding
But there's no hard feelings
There no feelings at all

You little thief
You little savage
You little beauty
You little whore

You've taken everything
I had to believe in
Now there's nothing
To believe in at all
So tell me how does it feel
To make a grown man wanna die
Does it make you uneasy
Does it every cross your mind

You little dream
You little nightmare
You little nothing
You little girl

You left me broken ...
There's no hard feelings ..
Cos when I needed you
You watched me fall



"There are always flowers
for those who want to see them."
