One generation plants the trees ...

... under whose cool shade another generation takes its ease. Proverb


My view of the sky from an old farm area where I walk. Spring has sprung in Minnesota.
For more sky views or to join in, visit Tom at SkyWatch Friday.

Happy Friday!

Oh yes ... quite right ... we have a similar proverb here in Portugal. But imagine the joy of seeing a tree growing after planting it ...
