Whenever I see old trees, they make me start wondering.
They would have so much to tell!
The one shown in this post is in the yard at Arrowhead, home of the New England writer, the late Herman Melville.
Remember that he wrote Moby Dick?
The trunk of this old beauty is gnarled and unique looking.
It looks to me like it's been around a long time.
Perhaps the author's little daughters once had picnics underneath it.
It has lived many decades of life, through storms and all kinds of seasons.
Yet it remains strong and living!
Good work, old tree!
HAVE YOU READ ANYTHING BY HERMAN MELVILLE?
