At the root

The Cedar of Supreme Justice. And from Lebanon, the Himalayas or the Atlas mountains.

What would our childhoods be like without it, sheltering our games of hide-and-seek, offering its branches to our swings, or to our feet when we decided to climb higher and higher; without it populating the tales our parents told us in the evenings before bedtime? It adorns parks, botanical gardens, estate promenades and allotments. It’s so fast-growing, majestic, protective and major despite its eternal greenness.
