    Some trees really are amazing. Our California Bay Laurel trees here have a tendency to fall over, and where ever they land, they sprout too!

    Old trees surely do have great determination… they seem determined to stay alive somehow … even when their centers are rotted out they find a way to live. An inspiration. Your word is perfectly matched to your images Jean. ;>)

    If this was anywhere near a suburb, it would have been chainsawed and never given the chance.

    Amazing! I hope the tree gets to rejuvenate itself into its former glory.

    Just think too of all the wildlife that this wonderful old tree is hosting.
