Cripes, Crhis...those are Aussie Eucalypts!

Hack 'em down immediately, or they will take over the forest.
Chris: Err - can't do that Ray, they're in an arboretum..
I think a friendly pat is sufficient. some people just go over the top
Chris: Yes indeed - I'd pat her but wouldn't wish to go any further..

We might be in an Arboretum - oh, I recall a story friend K. once told about hugging trees to get some energy from them. This appears to be a rejuvenated Lady K.. I would always respect persons who like hugging trees, but I prefer to hug human beans.
Chris: This isn't Lady K Philine but my friend H. I am happy to hug trees and women whenever the opportunity arises

I don't think much of the koala ccostume worn by your friend(?); I would demand a refund. Does the sign say "Do not nail signs to this tree"?
Chris: I will buy her a new costume for Xmas

I hope she was hugging it to give energy to the tree - it might not be too happy in our Northern climate
Chris: The tree survived Lisl
I will brave the pouring rain and hug a tree or two. As a matter of fact, if I am picked up by a big gust of wind, I will reach out for a tree to stop my flight.
Chris: Very sensible Mary

Patting is good ... but not of trees.
Chris: Hmm...what would you prefer to pat then?
I share and It is in fact one of my favourite recommendations, not only fr beginners...
Chris: Thank you JC

Unfortunately it is a sit in the house watching the gales blow a hoolie here at the moment, it would be lovely to be able to go out and hug a few trees
Chris: No wind here Anne
I've never heard of tree hugging before, although I am, of course, familiar with the habit of women hugging.
Chris: It's a relatively modern occupation Brian
I have heard of the tree hugging phenonemon before but never seen it in action Chris. Thanks for that
Chris: It exists worldwide Janet

It's great to hug a tree Tiff but they never reciprocate.
Chris: They play hard to get Chad
I've never seen anyone actually hugging a tree before.

As for international mountain day......I've written a mountain of Christmas cards. Does that count?
Chris: It does count Pauline, I'm fed up with Christmas already...grump!
Well congratulations to the Mountains!! Great shot of this happy tree hugger!
The tree was lonely...
