On our walks I often come across what appear to be hieroglyphic images written where the bark has fallen away from the tree trunks.


With my vivid imagination I can conjure up all sorts of ideas about what these “pictures” represent


Each person’s imagination will see something different, so I won’t reveal my ideas but allow others to form their own.


I find them fascinating and I never cease to marvel at the things that show up in the woods,,,

Until next time
