Makes You Wonder

Don't you sometimes wish that trees could talk? I'd love to have a chat with this one...

To those of you who have commented recently on posts, thanks. I have been unable to comment back for some reason. Please know that I appreciate your comments and would have answered them if the Blogger gods had so allowed. Perhaps I will be in favor again soon and be permitted to comment on my own blog ;)

Looks like a mama stump bending over to listen to a baby stump.

Bloggers gods? or demons? perhaps your tree is a protector of both blog comments and baby stumps.

It does look almost human. I'm a bit nuts about trees. Saw some brilliant "enormous" mahogany at the Everglades last week see:

But also look at this gorgeous Yew tree in the churchyard of one our local churchs in Dorset, England. Its totally hollow - you can see right through it!

Hope you like them! Jane x

Have you ever heard of "trail trees" that the Indians formed - they took young trees that were along important trails or that pointed to water, settlements, etc. and they tied them to the ground until they bent in the direction of the place they were marking. Here is a blog about it - I think it is fascinating:

wren,
You're right, more likely demons than gods!

jane,
I really liked your site and plan to be a regular visitor.

SNL,
Give Rat Dog (you know she's not a real dog, right?) a kiss for me. And thanks for the birthday wishes.

suze,
Thanks for the link. I had no idea there were such things as trail trees - how cool!
