I took this ugly photo of a fencerow corner because I saw a Nature Post here.
This next photo is taken from the other side of the downed apple tree. Notice the dark, dead branches of the tree and a few apple saplings growing at the far left. (far right in the sketch).
A Reverence for Wood, "Resting on a bed of leaves and young shoots was the hulk of an old apple tree well over three feet in diameter. It had fallen from old age, yet some of the branches which were still living when the old tree fell had struck into the ground and miraculously taken root to become offspring of the parent tree".
Besides, I too, have a reverence for wood... and trees.
