Knotty Old Tree

May 7, 2014


i think that if walls could talk

so could this tree

the history it holds

 within its core

perhaps, i shall sit

under this old tree

and wait and see

if it will talk to me…

      Hello! I’ve been missing you! Thank you Gemma! I agree what stories it would tell…

        Awwwwwwww. Thanks, Roberta. Nice to be missed. Lots of things going on with my mom having gone to hospital, and now rehab. Insurances that are insane to deal with, visits to keep her cheery (my sis and I are the only family she has so it’s up to us). Just a whole bunch of mumbo jumbo. I hope, really really hope, to get some time to myself to get back into blogging. I miss it so. I try to peek at some once in a while and comment, but I can’t keep up the pace I was doing before this.
        I absolutely LOVE this post. Great photos!
        Be ‘seeing’ you. 🙂

        It sounds like you have a lot on your plate. I do wish your mom the best. She will be in my thoughts and prayers. Getting one’s medical needs taken care is crazy, since all is so pricey. I’ve not had medical or dental for years and now I am supposed to enroll here in Oregon and it all sounds so iffey, as in it’s all still not worked out?? Anyway, thank you for the update.You’ll get back into the swing of things when you are able. Take Care!

    It’s that glorious wisteria that captured my eye. It’s one of my favorites, and that’s quite a stand of it.

      I agree with you! The branches of the tree next to it intertwine, and it is a grand old tree too..

    I took photos of some unusual trees in San Diego, Roberta. We are tree-lovers and I love that!

      Hi Lara! We lived in a mountain community of southern Ca for almost two years. One time my husband showed me a very old oak tree that had a rock stuck in its limbs. He said it weighed at least 600 hundred pounds. Many trees take a lot of nature related hardship but they don’t go down without a!
