Birch trees are special to us. Not just because they are gorgeous and different, but because they were an inseparable part of the landscape of our childhood and youth. Many fairy tales and songs describe the elegant tree.
We were very glad to see quite a few birch trees growing in the park. However, these trees must not like the climate, and they are not thriving. In the past 22 years, several of them have died. Besides, young trees that were planted here a few years back were tortured and broken by the "homo sapient" who inhabit the area.
We hope that remaining few trees will survive. There is something very special and unique about the birch trees in spring time submerged in a green "fog", and then in the fall, when their golden leaves gently shimmer in the sun above our heads creating music of their own.
