Tree Spirits

3개월 전

These are old trees I saw in Charlottetown beside a historic church. The photos were taken when snow was still on the ground.

Church is Kirk of St. James Presbyterian. The cornerstone for this church was erected in 1877.

The first Kirk build by the Scottish settlers to PEI was in 1831. It was a wooden structure and services were in Gaelic and English.

I found the ancient footed trees by the church to be fascinating with the bumps I call the face of the tree spirit.

I think, by the wizened up old looking face, the tree/nature spirit has been with the tree from the beginning.

If you look closely, small beady eyes are looking right at you.

It seems that these trees have seen a lot in their lifetime.

Yes, they would have quite a story to tell. 😊

What a grand historical Church @redheadpei I absolutely love the wonderful textures of the different coloured bricks and of course the fabulous structure. And that old, gnarled tree has its own story to tell. (U & R )

Thanks so much Trudee @trudeehunter. ❤️ Yes, I think the old tree has seen a lot of goings on. 😊
I love seeing the old historical churches too. So much of the heart of the people of that era shows thru.

So true Jo. Historical buildings are not just amazing structures but they represent solid foundations and a sense of permanence even though we know they cannot last forever.

Hi @redheadpei, this is one good entry into treetuesday:) Such lovely old trees with lovely energy.

Mornin Angie and thanks so much for your kind remarks. Happy you feel the trees wonderful energy. 😊 🌳 💕

haha! I like that face in the tree. That's an unsual shape at the bottom, it that normal?

Thanks Cowboy Jon! A great old face coming out of the tree.
I call them footed trees when the tree has the bulges on the bottom of the truck. Probably so prominent because the trees are really old. 🌳
