a Lebanon Cedar

Sometimes, when looking through the flags of visitors of this blog, I can see the flag of the Lebanon, which shows a cedar as a national symbol. This reader from Lebanon is Jacqueline Hadel, http://jacquelinemhadel.wordpress.com a photojournaliste, actually working in Beirut, highlighting street art and culture all over the world by excellent photography work, and today I like to dedicate this « old » picture of a Lebanon cedar at the castle’s garden of Bad Homburg to her.

The tree was a present made by the Duke of Cambridge to his sister on the occasion of her marriage to the Landgraf Friedrich VI. Joseph. Today the cedar has a maximum girth of 6,40 meters (about 19 ft) and a hight of more than 20 meters (about 65 ft). The crown of the tree spreads out over 35 meters (about 114 ft). The picture was created by a Praktica DCZ 1.3 s in July 2006. I liked this tiny camera, because I could connect it directly to any TV-set to watch the pictures.

lebanon2_0706I am sure the name of the Duke’s sister appeared on this information table, but here — the text remains unreadable. I will check this 😀
