It was one of those days without a cloud in the sky.
The heat wave was upon us and tormented those who weren’t at the beach.
I was on my way to the sea, when I passed the old oak, which is over 800 years old.
The tree was not very pretentious at a distance but that perception changed quickly to curiosity when I got closer.
The oak tree is hollow.
I walked through a tall passage in the tree trunk and suddenly I was in another world.
A world of silence and a welcome coolness. Actually I’ve experience this before, in a church!
I look attentively around in my newly discovered cave.
The tree gives me notions of a stalactite cave but that illusion is destroyed by the look of the green oak leaves through a hole in top of the cave.
Georg Weisler, a catholic forester used the cave as a pray chamber, maybe he was druid, in secrecy ❤
Forester Georg Weisler lived in the years 1792 – 1854, and came from Bohemia.

I never used to pay much attention to trees, Hanna, but they do reward you if you do 🙂 🙂
I find they do, Jo 🙂
They are quite interesting the more you learn about them.
Hope you solve the problem with your laptop!!
Wish you a blessed evening and a happy Sunday!!
Thank you 🙂 🙂
Awesome pictures of trees, Hanna.
Dear Isabel. We have the most beautiful old oaks north of Copenhagen. The trees are really worth a study.
Feliz fin de semana ❤
An amazing old tree!
Thanks for that. The more you know about the trees, the more exciting it becomes!!
Yes it is, Leya. I have reinforced some of the colours in the existing lichens and bark, but it’s really impressive in itself.
Magnificent! A retreat from the world, even for Georg Weisler.
Thanks a lot! A retreat is the right word for the hollow oak 🙂
