I could have spent a long time looking at these trees wondering what happened to them to cause them to look like this. What conditions caused all those funny bumps at the bottom of the trunk? How did that hole appear? Why were parts of the tree dead and acorns showing new signs of life too. I wondered what life was like here when the trees were tiny. Were there still sheep and deer roaming the landscape? Who would have been walking here on a summer evening like we were? My imagination ran riot.
What an amazing place to play, it took be back to times of climbing on trees as a child and of being awestruck by giant redwoods in California.
I am amazed at the adaptability, diversity and beauty of trees.
