Wanted to share one of my long-term obsessions. This tree is in my 'yard' next to my apartment. She's wonderful.. just taking this picture is enchanting, listening to the baby birds in her branches... two years ago i met one of the new baby blue jays that fell out the nest.. circle of life lessons.. the birds left for a few seasons. but they're back!! I think my elderly neighbor buried her dog under this tree.. they would sit outside and Keep each other company under this tree.. I remember the dog being old and sickly then one day the groundsman planted over 50 little bushes all around the tree... never saw the dog again... I'm obsessed with identifying it... can't find matches in my books, so I've been posting pics in groups. Whatever it is, it's has a powerful energy field. Just hugging it... and feeding it 😉 makes my day.
I read once that many of the trees in cities are dying due to pollutants and wonky seasons, too much rain v too little rain. Something about the lichens indicating the tree may be sick. Nooooo! I hope shes not sick. Lichens will grow on anything so thats a good sign. I wonder how old she is and if she was here before the apartments? I dont know. She looks otherwise healthy, strong branches and plenty leaves with yellow, sticky, chalky pollen sperm covering my truck. Lol. I aint mad.
