What wonderful old trees. If only they could tell us what they've seen over the years. I feel we owe them a lot of respect as wise elders of the plant world.
Thank you for sharing them with us.

I agree with Linda, just like an elephant's foot! They look as if they could get up and walk like the trees in one of the Harry Potter films....:o)
