Down around the corner where the chickens and the cows live, there stands an old hollow tree.
Despite it’s obvious age and condition, it still is sending forth leaves this spring.
If I were as old as that tree, I don’t think I’d be producing any leaves. Old man tree is nothing if not determined and durable!
