If just one fruit of Laurelin was as bright as the Sun, I hate to think what the entire tree would have been like...
Also, while it's well-known that the White Tree of Gondor was descended from Telperion, everyone seems to assume that there was never any copy made of Laurelin - but in that case, what was Galadriel singing about in the song I used as a title for this comic? ("and by the strand of Ilmarin there grew a golden tree (...) in Eldamar beneath the walls of Elven Tirion")?
Part 18: I sang of leaves
Next time: Part 19: A world divided.
