Whatsoever things are true, honest, pure lovely and of good report.... Philippians 4: 8

A gentle snake
and a curved shape
Are not fake...
But what we see
Are transformations,
In an old apple tree
Of natures formations.
Poetry by me, AJP

This Dutchess Apple tree is over 100 years old on our property but I admire how it has dealt with the passage of time. We see the snake formation in one section of the tree and if we stand in back of it...the curved figure shape becomes apparent on the side of the tree that is leaning forward. We don't eat the apples as they are generally wormy but the wildlife such as the deer love them. Nature provides so many interesting patterns to observe and photograph.

    I actually thought 'brontosaurus' when I first saw the image. Your tree certainly is full of beautiful features!!

    Two great observations Andrea! Wonderful detail in both. We all probably see a lot of different things. The one of the left reminds me of an otter and the other one looks like a woman's curvy bottom !
