NEW TREE DISCOVERY


There are still parts of the property that I haven't had much chance to explore because they've been covered up in brush, etc.  I was mowing last weekend and because some of the grasses and/or weeds had died during the Winter, I was able to mow up into a part I haven't done before.  I hopped off and and moved some brush out of the way and discovered this cool, old, mesquite tree.

I can't wait to clear out around him/her.  It won't happen soon, too many other things going on with the garden and soon to be flower beds, but it will be something I can add to the list of things to do later on.

He/she could be Barnabas' younger (and shorter) brother/sister.

I'll have to clean him up later on.  Maybe a project for next year.

I love old trees.

mesquite wood is good for cooking as well. trim that sucker up and save the branches for BBQ. stumps are good to make side tables. Awesome find.

What a venerable old woman. What a place to have parties and a great place to have a picnic. Lucky you.

We have lots of mesquite ont he property, though most is smaller. Yes, love mesquite smoked stuff. Haven't used ours yet but I have that on my short list.

Ha, that is very true. He looks like he should have a mouth and eyes hidden in there somewhere. :-)

I like that, a venerable old woman. I am not sure if it's a boy tree or a girl tree, but I like that.

Dang, venerable old woman, I like that, now an old fellow, I like that too!!

Most definitely. Especially once I get it all cleared out so it can "see again", LOL.
