Giant Tree

28 May


I took a picture of this giant Oak Tree at the entrance of one of my fields today. It is at least six feet in diameter and would have yielded a lot of lumber in the past. There once was a house at this site, but it is gone now. It makes me wonder about history, how many people have sat under it’s shade and what stories could it tell if it could only talk. But this tree has seen better days. It has been struck by lightning and hit by cars, burned by fires, attacked by insects and ravaged by disease but it still keeps hanging on. Like most things in nature, our number one instinct is just to survive. So like this old Oak Tree, let’s keep hanging on and survive as long as we can. Better days are ahead!
