What a couple of months can change?

You might ask, why are we keeping that dreadful old dead tree trunk in our front garden? Well sometimes such things are deceptive, sometimes we need patience and a wee bit of faith. I realize a sneeze, a gust of wind or to simply lean on this old tree trunk and it would fall to pieces in a pile of dust . It is indeed rotten to the core and I’d agree its a bit of an eyesore when the snow disappears. I took this photo on the 18th May 2018.


I took this latest photo on the 18th July. See the beautiful transformation that nature so cleverly supplies. Now you can understand why we care for this old trunk, we brace it and protect it. It adds and provides beauty every summer to our front lawn. I only hope it continues to stand for many years to come

God Bless and keep reading

  1. Since living in México I was always amazed to see trees being pruned back almost to the trunk. I thought that the tree must be dead and was being prepared to be chopped down. Then a few weeks later leaves would begin to appear and growth was back in process. They appear mostly to be the popular Bougainvillia. It’s amazing. I see this plant as a tree, vine or hedge. It produces a beautiful flower and is in bloom the year round.

    Our old tree trunk is covered in vines that grow every spring.
