A Morning Walk...

...after I get my morning chores done ~
once everyone is fed, watered & happy...

I head out for my morning walk
with my best friends...

Lazy & Buddy of course!

...we walk usually up through the wooded path that Peter has cut for us,
which leads us past the old share-cropper's house on our property...

to the
"Big Tree"

the old share-cropper's house has to be at least 150 yrs old,
and the 'Big Tree' is probably older than that...
I'm not sure what type of tree it is,
but I do know one thing....

Someone...
long, long ago ~
left their mark on this tree...

there are carved initials & words
that both time & growth
has obscurred from my eyes....

although blurred from the stretching of bark,
you can still make outletters such as
"E", "H", "F", "M", "N"
and either
"C" or "G"
I so wish I knew what this said and who left it....
I wish I could make out a date or name ~
...just a small glimpse into what once was.
I'll continue to visit this old tree on my daily journey through our woods
and the past....
perhaps one day I'll find another clue.

Blessings from the Farm...

That looks like a nice walk. I love all the leaves on the ground.

That is interesting about the marks on the tree. I haven't seen anything like that. (I don't like to hurt trees either!)
