I love to take a walk now and then on the grounds of Bard college. One of my favorite spots is the manicured lawn and gardens of the Levy Economic Institute. Blithewood was another lovely Hudson Valley Mansion with great views of the Hudson River and Catskill Mountains.
This post however is not about this ideal setting, but rather about a tree that seems so out of place but you can't help but love it.
From the plaque erected in front of the tree it is believed that this tree has been around 350 years and is most likely the oldest tree on the campus.
Take a look and you will see just what I mean.
With the economic downturn many might feel as if they are living through a drought , a fire, or even being struck by lightening however like this tree it is possible to be a survivor especially with some help from friends.
When I took a closer look at the tree, I was amazed that it was still standing but I also noticed some reinforcements in the form of screws and some concrete was applied. Yes people around saw how much this tree wanted to live so a helping hand was extended.
