The Lebanese Cedars are magnificent, I can remember the days when I could walk beneath their boughs and enjoy them in there glory. Now they are fragile and can only be viewed and enjoyed from a distance…

It reminds me very much of my first visit to Stonehenge where I was able to look up and touch the stones. I was in awe, just being in the vicinity of such immense stones…

    Those days of touching the stones – will we see them again?

      It is unlikely that there will be unrestricted access to them, but there are plans to make them more accessible although I am not if they have been put on hold due to the economic climate.

      For English Heritage members they do on occasion special days where members can get closer to the stones.

    So sad to see the “giants of nature” fall. There are so many things around the world that may be gone in a few years–future generations will miss out on so many wonders of the world. And, you’ve been to Stonehenge–I’m so envious!! Have a lovely weekend. Mickie :)

      It is a shame but they are growing new ones underneath which is nice :-)

      I have been to Stonehenge a few times but only once was I able to get up close to the stones.

  3. Lebanese cedars are very rare to find these days.
    Have you been to Avebury?
    There’s a mini “Stonehenge” there that you can get up close, touch, and even climb!
    I love Wiltshire – it’s fun to hunt crop circles there in the summer!
    But I only managed to see one, just one, last year.
