I remember playing in the shade of this old pecan tree when I was a little girl.
A long time ago the tree was struck by lightning. The wounds from the strike are only scars now.
Although damaged and misshaped the tree lives on. It’s a resilient one. It found a way to survive…..thrive even.
Birds still perch there. Shade is still given. It’s a generous tree.
And the hole in the center of the tree is the perfect place for a squirrel to rest from his scurrying.
