Weekly Photo Challenge : An Old Tree

I am older than you,
I am older than your parents,
And I am older than your grandparents.
Maybe I am still older than your (late) great grandparents..

But I am alive, and I am standing here..
And I hope I will still alive to see your children and grand children..
I am a witness to the passage of Time..

I am old, but I still remember everything that has happened for 144 years..
I see how people changing,
I fell how seasons change..

Time flies,
But I still remember the man who planted me..
I still feel his warm hands and his lovely smile..

I am just an old tree in Bogor Botanical Garden..
I am one hundred and fourty four years old..
I am here..
I am alive..
I am evergreen..

  1. Bagaimana ya keadaan saat 28 Desember 1871 itu… suka deh di KRB semua pohonnya diberi tanggal, atau minimal tahun penanaman. Jadi tahu umurnya sudah berapa. Penasaran deh dengan mana pohon tertua di kebun ini :hehe.
    Ini pohonnya di sebelah mana Mbak?

    1. Betul, kak… jadi ngebayangin KRB saat itu sesepi apa… hehehe…
      Nah, itu dia, ka… aku juga belum nemu pohon tertuanya niy… hehehe… harus menyisir sedikit2 nih…
      Kalau pohon yg di foto itu lokasinya di belakang istana Bogor, dr jembatan gantung, nanjak di samping makam mbah jepra, lalu nyusurin sisi belakang istana sampe nemuin jalan besar yang menuju jalan kenari I. Nah… bingung kan…hihihi…

      1. yang deket jembatan gantung warna merah, kak.. nah aku malah bingung monumen kelapa sawit yg mana… hihihi…
        Hayuk atuh kabarin aja kalau mau ke Bogor… tapi sabtu minggu yaa…
