If this stump could talk

I recently came across the stump of a tree, and I stopped for a few moments to rub my hands over it.  It sure looked like beautiful wood to me.

This stump was located in an area with beautiful hemlock trees, but since I am not a tree expert all I knew was a large tree once occupied the space.  A tree that probably shaded many from the sun, a place where birds rested and squirrels ran up and down collecting nuts.  The area also looked as if someone might have been able to picnic under it.

So many thoughts running through my mind , If only this stump could talk.

Jennifer every one of the rings in that stump represents a year, and I can spot several rings in the picture, and I bet there are many more I can not see.

Thanks for sharing your picture, Jennifer. This tree was probably pretty old when it was cut down. Did you count the rings?

I have thought the same thing about large, old trees.... if only they could share everything they have 'seen' over the years.

Jennifer,

This is a powerful picture...Now, you got me wondering of all the stories and tales this stump could tell and reveal if it could talk.
