A POEM A DAY - GUARD OF HONOUR



This old tree stump on the 'El Carrascal' hillside is in an area of mixed holm oak and pine. I like the way new saplings are growing around it, bringing new life but in their circling of the dying tree also appearing to honour and protect the old. As we are learning more about the underground communication and support system between trees I wonder if the old stump maintains a role in the tree community via its roots, being nurtured by others.
