Creative Dabbling..Want to Join me?
This photo was taken just before a front came through and it bucketed down with rain.So I did not get up too close and personal with the tree. lol.
Nice photo but very interesting information. I had not seen this before. Always learn something new as a result of Multiply -- even though it's closing soon.
So true Lynda and it will be missed.
A canoe tree now that is interesting. No, Tabby and Nera, they do not have cat trees in Australia.
LOL...you never know Pat we might find one.
Impressive canoe tree! My: Hidden Treasure
What a fascinating tree - a bit twisted and magical. My entry
Thanks anders. Magical is correct.
Very interesting tree... thanks for sharing a bit of its history..hidden-treasures
Beautiful Milli~!! I LOVE TREES~!! This one is Woooow~!!!
I know that you love trees Weenie and So Do I! Thank You.
Love your shot Milli and I love the history of the canoe.That is a interest of mine since I have a connection tothe Snoqualmie Indian Tribe. They carve out Canoes and have Canoe journeys.Thanks for the link I may share it with them at our next gathering.That must be a very large tree to be able to have bark that thick?
Let me share a couple more links for you here Sue...http://www.dpcd.vic.gov.au/__data/assets/pdf_file/0005/35870/AA_01_ScarTrees_12.06.08.pdfhttp://www.creativespirits.info/aboriginalculture/land/aboriginal-scarred-treesYes these trees are very big.Thanks.
That's really interesting Milli !!! It almost looks like a doorway into the heart of the tree!!
So true Mitch it appears that way.
Stunning picture of a tree yalking about history .
A beautiful photo Milli and very interesting history.The Maori in New Zealand still do that today. Their carvings are awesome too.
We need to know more about your Maori's there too Shayna. Thanks.
It is amazing all the wonderful products we get from trees!I love the violet coloring...
You are right DP. Trees are so important in many ways.I think that the violet is coming through from the grey bark and the overcast conditions before an impending storm.
Thanks Milli. The Maori from New Zealand were here to participate in the Canoe Journey. They stayed with some of the Snoqualmie tribe.You have sparked my interest.
Wow Sue that is interesting. Please do follow it through.I have a quote on the bottom of the photo. It was taken from a site about these trees.
great photo and words!Hidden Treasures
