Gnarled Ent

Ent-like, the gnarled branches of the tree in the photo belie its age. I have no doubt it’s been around for many many decades.

When I took this pic I was cognisant of the fact that all I had was an iPhone. There was a wall behind me preventing me from walking backwards enough to capture the immensity of the outstretched branches.

I tried to show how far the branches stretched in the pic below.

This post is inspired by one the trending topics on Twitter today – #10thingsilove.

Some tweets were funny, others nonsensical, some were cute and romantic.

Let’s see if I can count to 10:

  1. Girl Saturdays with my friends, starting with brunch, trawling the shops, and ending with afternoon tea and cake.
  2. My morning soya cappuccino.
  3. Music radio in morning traffic.
  4. My coffee machine.
  5. M.A.C. Blotting powder.
  6. Hot summers, highveld thunderstorms and perfect autumns.
  7. The smell of wet earth after a rainstorm.
  8. Wooden houses, pressed ceilings and wide wrap-around verandas.
  9. Wriggling into soft beach sand so that it takes the shape of my body thereby providing the perfect support.
  10. Lying on my back on a sun-warmed stone floor during a summer sunset.
  11. Travel.
  12. The Taj Mahal.
Looks like I can’t count to 10 after all đŸ™‚ LOL!
