A Big Bite

 What a beautiful tree! But strangely enough, it looks like someone took a huge bite out of it! I wonder what happened? There are no wires around, or anything else that would have gotten in the way of it.

It does look like someone took a bit out of it! It is a beautiful home though.

Hmmm. Wonder if this is natural or it was trimmed for infestation or a limb broke.

Well what do you know. It does look like a bit was taken out of it. It also makes it look like a giant gnome hat.

That is a beauty for sure, bite or no bite. But the setting as a whole is wonderful, too.

Re: my blog

The Tom Brady programs are only on ESPN+. For which you have to pay. So I will not be seeing it.

But I wanted to put all those links together, in one place. Just for me. I don't expect anyone else to want it. -smile-

But yes, the quote is wonderful!

It was in the football locker room, in the Michigan college he went to, so he saw it, every day, of his college years. I guess it influenced him.

Perhaps a branch broke off when the tree was young???? It sure does look like something took a huge bite, for sure!...jp

I wonder if there were ever wires that ran near it, but it makes for a nice photo and conversation. I love the house as well.

The whole scene is so pretty! And that tree does look like it was bitten. But it sure is gorgeous!

It would be interesting to know what happened. It is a beautiful tree even with a bite taken out of it.

That really is a beautiful looking tree. Looks just like Autumn. Strange how it's growing though with no branches on the right side, hmmmmm. The pictures of the tree and the white picket fence are so lovely.
