Big ole tree

Onwards we trekked at the Garnett Preserve! Stories unfolding before us.

The shadows of the ole oaks crossed the now empty pond. Take note of the fallen oak on the far side of the pond. I will get to it below.

On the left bank of pond, we found these raccoon bones!

Ok, here is the big ole tree. Looking down the trunk, you can see the squirrels made it their dinner table. The squirrels dined on the fruit of the Bois D’arc!

Beautiful white shelf fungus lined the sides!

The shelf fungus was fairly thin and smooth on the underside as seen here.

Jeanne had taken another route and was at the far end. She had found some moss to collect.

The Greenbriar blocked her way over to where I was. So instead of going the long way…it was up and over!

In brief, the big ole tree has been providing for many years. It thrived spreading its acorns, providing a table for the squirrels, a easier path for Jeanne, and homes for many more even after it had fallen.

The more you know, the more you see and the more you see, the more you know.


  1. Like the living wall – wonder how much water and maintenance it takes and does it look that good all year????

  2. Well I bet it depends on your location 😉 but could also depend on much dirt was there too…maybe? And of course type of plants.
