this is our favourite tree on the lawn of our apartment. it's an american beech with a large door in its trunk where lightening or fire has gouged its tattoo. mushrooms grow in there and sometimes people put their junk but we always fish it out. we do other things to look after it also like sit under its low sweeping branches and have picnics.
ain't she a beaut?! she's getting ready for the cold right now with her yearly performance of brilliant orange art. even in winter, i will stop to remember she's in there.
