    It sort of looks like a giant squirrel, the tree burls.

    Amazing, majestic maple tree!

    • Thank you, Amy! It was a sight to behold, a beautiful body sculpted by the passage of time & circumstance, its bark etched by growth under the sun’s graces. I hope you are having a wonderful weekend, my friend πŸ™‚

    • Thank you, my friend! I’m glad you enjoyed my play on words …those busty maple trees can sure put on a show, drawing an audience of squirrels who sit mesmerized, staring at her beautiful, bountiful burls! Lady Godiva of a botanical nature, bare but not bashful in winter’s panorama! Ok, I think I’ve taken it a wee bit too far…sorry if I offend πŸ˜‰ It’s all in good fun, another pun growing under the sun…

  6. well said!

    (and shame on you!) πŸ˜‰
