A tree-mendous Monday

I was going to join Jo on her Monday walk today, but after getting back home late Thursday night, working Friday  followed by Bible study, relaxing a bit Saturday, then church and work today. I’m beat; ready for bed, but wanting to get a Monday post out.

I thought you might enjoy this photo of an unusual tree trunk.  The local park service cut down this tree at our nearby pond, but I’ve never seen a design like this before.  I find it fascinating, and ironic, that it looks so much like a leaf.  I hope it brings a smile to your face and a joyful start to your week.

Now off to bed.   Ahhh!

    Wow. I’ve never seen the inside of a tree look like this. Great shot Janet 😀

    It does look like a leaf! Nice 🙂

  3. One of Mother Nature’s finest moments. 🙂

  4. Cool looking leaf pattern, Jan. I’ve never seen anything like it before, either. Welcome back 🙂

    Wow! Wonder what caused that???

    • My husband spoiled it this morning (not really) by suggesting the saw might have made that pattern while the tree was being cut down. Even if so, it’s funny that it’s shaped like a leaf and it still looks cool.


  6. So gorgeous, Janet. Sorry for the tree though. 😦

    Very cool. Is it a maple tree? Also interesting that it doesn’t look like the two sections match. Nice find.

    Well seen Janet, so unusual

  9. Since the rings in a tree trunk can tell you its age, I wonder what this striking pattern says about its life? What a curious find…

    It did! I hope you get rested.

  12. I have never seen a tree trunk looking like that before!

    They must have cut into the memory bank of the tree, Janet. A one-of-a-kind image.

  14. That was a unique tree, and wonderful find!
