A tree is so much more than leaves
It is shade
It is home and perch.
It is look-out
and hiding place.
I look at wood very differently than most
where they see fuel and walls and fences,
I see the stem of a sacrificed friend.
FLOWER loves the trees.
Tree roots are like sculpture.
I have been cleaning around my tree trunks for several weeks.
I use a digger, clippers and several sizes of bristle brushes.
I have cut off crossing roots that cut into the bark
and even removed some rocks surrounded by bark.
I felt like I was removing a thorn from a lion’s paw.
I could almost hear the trees sigh.
These lovely shapes were made by the tree.
I just enhanced them with my tools.
This is where I sit to hide. It’s like a tree throne.
Stay tuned for the magical transformation in the coming weeks.
Follow the sneaky FLOWER.
