The hard concrete surface is definitely softened by the trees, don’t you think?

And, interestingly, north and south share the Lagerstroemia indica, crape myrtle and resedá, respectively:

It’s going to be Father’s Day in Brasil (with an ‘S’, of course!). Walter Rossi's father wrote this beautiful poem about trees:

Thank you for sharing, Walter! Here’s a humble attempt to translate it:

Humans, protect me!

Together with the fresh air from dawn to dusk,

I offer you: aroma, flowers, fruits and shade!

If this is not enough,

Shield for your gold,

Pine for your notes,

A roof for your shelter

Wood for your warmth

A table for your bread

A bed for your rest

Support for your steps

Balm for your pain

An altar for your prayers

And I shall be with you until you die…

Here is my plea: don’t hurt me!
