Part of the work we do here at Spring Bird is to maintain trails that were laid out by Torkel Korling years ago.
The jungle like tendencies of the weed trees keep us busy with just their trimming, but every once in awhile a tree or larger branch will cross a path.
This tree has been arched over this path since before we came here. We used to be able to limbo under it. Eventually it sank too low limboing.
So, Pat cut the end off, and we walk around it, creating a bump in our path.
I think it is lovely. It is like a gate, a reminder that it is a gift to be able to walk through this place.
