Miss Hemlock’s Knotty Bits. February 24, 2012

Miss Hemlock may be old, but her knotty bits are still impressive:

The inside of this ancient (several centuries old) hemlock is studded with the “knots” which gave roots to her lower branches.  Heart-rot and time have revealed them to the casual passer-by, such as me.

And Elliot, who notices such things.

You wag, you.

If “wag” means something like “troll,” yeah, I’m trolling for hits with those goofy tags. If it doesn’t mean that, I’m clueless! 🙂

wag: a person given to droll, roguish, or mischievous humor; wit.

That about sums it up 🙂

Guilty as charged, Yer Honor! 😉

I’ve never seen anything like that. It’s as if the tree, poor Miss Hemlock, has been turned inside out.

Yes, isn’t it? Pretty cool to come across this in the woods.
