That Old Tree

That Old Tree

That was quick. On my last visit to the old tree on October 9 the leaves were still hanging on. Now they are all gone. Not far from the tree I met Tarantino's favorite actress. She was out walking and we talked for a while about the now cancelled plans to build a National harness racing track arena here. Christina told me that one of her neighbors had met an inspector from the horse track company, who had explained to him that this area was too small for such a big project. So hurrah for that!

Ah, the tree sighs with relief, but she looks so vulnerable without her foliage.

That's good news! I would have missed "that old tree".

Glad the tree is safe from development. Great shot!

Would this tree have gone if the plans had gone ahead? They are too precious to be lost.

I love your "tree series" in different seasons. very cool

I think it would have been history Gerald. I'm guessing just the parking lot they would have needed would have been enough to totally destroy this rural part of Tungelsta. I guess I should have gone back to the old tree this morning, because we had the first snow fall of the season this morning!

Love that old tree. Our old tree, which looks eerily like this one, still has its leaves. Heh, heh. Won't lose them over the winter, either...

But it may be chopped down in the years ahead...or at the least, it will be surrounded by houses.

Great, always enjoy your "Tree" photos.

A horse track may ruins this whole project: I'm glad they can't do it!
