The well-worn path into the woods appears different to me this year. Mother Nature's winds have taken a lot of branches down which I move out of the way on each visit. In addition, this "archway" was created. Each time I walk under it though, I find it more than a tad unsettling.
A clump of cedars most of which have been strangled by the dreaded and invasive, Oriental Bittersweet (celastrus orbiculatus), is now leaning in an Easterly direction. The only thing holding this tree in particular is the strength of the round leaved woody vine of bittersweet.
So, until that thick, woody vine relinquishes it's grip causing the tree to fall and become an obstacle in my path, I wait.
seeing, saying, and sharing...
