  3. Maria,

    I love walking through forests, with the trees towering above me. It's amazing to think some trees are so old, they've been on the earth for hundreds of years. Could it be thousands of years?

  5. What a wonderful place to visit. I love forests. There is so much about Japan (and all the world) that I still don't know much about.

  6. How old are the cedars? The Bible mentions the "Cedars of Lebanon." I think Cedars can be very old, I have always loved trees best, more than flowers.

  7. Hi Maria .. see you at this year's A-Z .. cheers Hilary
