Oct 4th, 2017: Trees Dining

Nature sometime moves very quickly, like hurricanes, Monsoons, and Tornadoes. These always make the
news and get our attention. Sometimes we see nature has been moving so slowly we hadnít noticed until
it has partially swallowed something. Nature can use moving soil or rock or ice, but mostly trees.



Iíve seen trees eatingÖ make that having eatenÖ all sorts of wires, signs, sidewalks, and pipes.
The net has brought us trees eating bikes, fire hydrants, cars, old stone temples and all sorts of things that
refused to move. I admit the tree eating the bridge is a new one.



Trees pushing over grave stones, sometimes breaking them is fairly common in old cemeteries.



But this is a new one on me. Iím amazed that tree could smother that stone without breaking or
even moving it. But I guess it doesn't matter because the tree ate whoever the stone was for, long ago.



Flickr has a page dedicated to trees eating things.

Maybe Lieutenant John Forsythe of Company L of the 102nd Pennsylvania Infantry, was helping them.
