Treebeard

“Many of these trees were my friends. Creatures I had known from nut or acorn”

Today we went for a walk through the park on Harriet Island. I found this marvelous, monsterous old cottonwood. I named it ‘Treebeard’ after  the Tolkien   character.  This Treebeard is ancient and on the decline; the telltale trails of carpenter ants mean he’s hollow.

All I had was my iPhone 3G with me. If I return, I’ll bring my better camera.

Burls and swirls, grottos and caves.
