Yes, it’s a long title. I’m a rebel with a cause. No tea review today though. Instead I’ve got some trivia and more tree love to share. ❤ I don’t know how I produced the photo above, but I like it! That tree knows how to shake it!
When was tea introduced to England?

How many trees does one person need for a years worth of oxygen?
Answer: 7-8 trees per person a year. Now I feel as if I should be planting 7-8 trees per year. I’m not earning my keep! *holds breath* [source:sciencefocus.com ]
My feet enjoying sitting under a tree, looking at other trees, and feeling peaceful in the evening light.
Oh, there’s my head! 😃 Some people enjoy taking photos with celebrities. “Not I” said the fly. “Give me a tree and a cup of tea. They bark, but they don’t bite.” (Okay, I made that up. No fly ever said this.)
On this particular evening I was having water after my walk. I may have also watered the tree when my bottle fell over. 😀 So I did something useful towards saving the trees.
Watered Trees! ❤
“And on the banks, on both sides of the river, there will grow all kinds of trees for food. Their leaves will not wither, nor their fruit fail, but they will bear fresh fruit every month, because the water for them flows from the sanctuary. Their fruit will be for food, and their leaves for healing.”Ezekiel 47:12
“Christians, true believers in Christ; who like trees have a root, are rooted in the love of God, in the person and grace of Christ, and have the root of the matter in them, the grace of the blessed Spirit; and who also is their sap, of which they are full, and so grow in grace, and in the knowledge of Christ; grow up in him, and grow upwards and heavenwards in their affections and desires, and in the exercise of faith and hope: they are the trees of the Lord, trees of righteousness, good trees, that bring forth good fruit; and are often in Scripture compared to trees the most excellent, as palm trees, cedars, olives, myrtles, &c. and wherever the Gospel comes, these trees arise, and are watered and made fruitful by it…”Gills Exposition of the Entire Bible
