But this is not just any tree. This is a western red cedar, probably the most magnificent tree you can find in the Pena park. Sometimes I feel like going back to this park just because of this tree – I’ll admit I’m a tree hugger!
When king consort Ferdinand II planned the park he wanted to create a mix between the kind of forests of his native Germany and botanical species from other parts of the world – which is why the Pena park has western red cedars, sequoias and camelias, among other species.
Today, when half the world is celebrating Valentine’s day, I wanted to bring your attention to a kind of love that is often forgotten: the love of Nature and the planet. Enjoy the day!
