365 Days of Middle-earth ~ Day 246: Ezellohar

Ezellohar was one of the untranslated names of the green mound which stood at the western gate of the city of Valimar (in Quenya it was called Corollairë [‘Evergreen-Mound of the Two Trees’] or Coron Oiolairë; it was also called the Green Mound). It was here that the Two Trees of the Valar grew, having been raised from the earth by Yavanna Kementári.  When the Two Trees were poisoned, the mound of Ezellohar was blackened.
