Precious (ThursdayTreeLove)

 "Ancient trees are precious. There is little else on Earth that plays host to such a rich community of life within a single living organism."

Sir David Attenborough
This is just one of the trees that live at Pune's Empress Garden. 
It's a very old Ficus and the aerial roots seem to be hosting many other plants. Obviously many birds and insects too must find this space extremely hospitable! 

The Empress Garden is an over 150year old garden in Pune home to many old and unique trees. A part of our precious natural heritage.

I am joining Parul in her ThursdayTreeLove bloghop. Do head over to see fantastic trees from around the world. Better still, join in.

Wow, this is a truly majestic tree.
Beautiful quote for such an ancient and unique tree.
Haven't seen The Empress Garden but it sure reminds me of Sim's Park in Coonoor, Nilgiris which has trees that are even 120 years old in it.

This is amazing and so pretty too. I have to find some big trees. Thanks for joining, Archana. Working on today's post and going to go live soon. <3

Wow! What a magnificent sight! Majestic is the word that came to my mind upon seeing the picture. Thank you for sharing, Archana.
