This is SO Shire Can't Post

Just had to share this gorgeous photo - this must be Bilbo's road. Hard to believe this is a real place!

Oh wow! You're right! [In reply to] Can't Post

It really is incredible! I want to walk there... but I can easily imaging seeing Gandalf and Bilbo coming up the road :D This is going to be my screen background for a while just so I can visit it as much as I can!

THANKS!

"The Dark Hedges"!

And to think, no one outside the local area even knew about this place until about 15 years ago!

It is gorgeous! They can add me to the list of the "desktop wallpaper clichéd"!

There's a book you might enjoy [In reply to] Can't Post

This was a tv show way back when with the book that went along and I loved the show so much that I made a note about it in case I ever wanted to buy it:

Meetings with Remarkable Trees

This book is about trees in the UK but the author has other books about other trees in other countries.

It looks like some of the episodes (or parts of them?) are online.

Did anyone realize they were all beeches?:) \\ [In reply to] Can't Post

 

" 'Fair lady Goldberry!' said Frodo at last, feeling his heart move with a joy that he did not understand. He stood as he had at times stood enchanted by fair elven-voices; but the spell that was now laid upon him was different: less keen and lofty was the delight, but deeper and nearer to mortal heart; marvellous and yet not strange."

Chapter VII: In the House of Tom Bombadil; FOTR's

Faerie contains many things besides elves and fays and besides dwarfs, witches, trolls, giants or dragons; it holds the seas, the sun, the moon, the sky; and the earth, and all things that are one in it: tree and bird, water and stone, wine and bread, and ourselves, mortal men, when we are enchanted."
— J.R.R. Tolkien

Beautiful, beautiful trees [In reply to] Can't Post

I googled some pictures and those roads are so pretty they hardly look real!

Around here in Ohio we have the big, white sycamores, especially around the rivers and creeks, but I've never seen them planted in rows like that. What a sight that would be.

that's really nice and has inspired... [In reply to] Can't Post

That's really nice and has inspired me to get on with a project I've been considering for a while; I've finally got on to beginning a Pinterest collection of images which could be Middle-earth locations. Each is to be captioned with a Tolkien quotation.

Haven't got far as yet, but here is it
http://www.pinterest.com/...-real-life-pictures/

I'd be glad to accept help with this - if anyone wants to pin to that board, please PM me your email address (or pinterest name: I think I can give you access from that, though I might be wrong, never having done a Group Board before).

Oh, and I haven't yet found a quotation to caption that lovely picture of the beeches - so suggest away!

Great photo, Blackfox! [In reply to] Can't Post

Here's one possibility:


Quote

At first it seemed to the hobbits that although they walked and stumbled until they were weary, they were creeping forward like snails, and getting nowhere . Each day the land looked much the same as it had the day before. Yet steadily the mountains were drawing nearer. South of Rivendell they rose ever higher, and bent westwards; and about the feet of the main range there was tumbled an ever wider land of bleak hills, and deep valleys filled with turbulent waters. Paths were few and winding, and led them often only to the edge of some sheer fall, or down into treacherous swamps.
