Tree Tuesday

Nature is amazing. The will to survive is very strong.

I noticed that in this tree as we drove a past a paddock in New Zealand.

 What had happened to it? Had it been struck by lightning? Maybe a long ago fire had swept through this area or maybe rot had started to set in.

But whatever the reason it certainly was not going to just lie down and give up…



They are beautiful in their peace,

they are wise in their silence.

They will stand after we are dust.

They teach us, and we tend them.

    Algorobo trees (carob) are often split and hollow like this, they make very interesting shapes.

    • Do you know why they split? Is it maybe old age?

        No I don’t know why but have noticed that it seems to be a common feature; I think most of the ones I’ve noticed are quite old.

  5. Reblogged this on 115 journals and commented:
    I am reblogging from Memories are Made of This because this tree reminds me of trees I have seen in Greece although it is no where near there.

I would love to get to know you, please leave a comment
