See the peaceful trees extend

ImageGranollers is full of trees.

Every season I marvel at how many there are and especially now in summer I thank whoever’s hand it was that planted so many throughout the city to give us shade


Here are a few of the ones I saw today as we walked down Ramon Llull towards the river and into Park Ponent.  It is a lovely dog walk and not too hot if you look for the trees.ImageThere are shady avenues

ImageTrees mean birds!

ImageIn Granollers there are always ugly things with beautiful things alongside. I’ve learnt to switch off from most of the bad bits


I love the walks by the river. There is often the sound of ducks and frogs and lots of busy birds crossing the water from treetop to treetop

ImagePark Ponent has a large pond as well as bordering the river.


Usually there is hardly anyone there.

All sorts of trees

ImageA nice place to sit and contemplate life

ImageAnd more blossom on the way home

ImageAnd see the peaceful trees extend
their myriad leaves in leisured dance—
they bear the weight of sky and cloud
upon the fountain of their veins.”
