the porcupine tree
One of my favorite trees on the mountain, just over the line onto the neighbor's property on top of the ridge. It's a chestnut oak that's been severely pruned by porcupines over the years. For some reason, they often target the oldest chestnut oaks maybe they're also the sweetest? This one supplies some high-quality real estate, as well.
As long as I've admired this tree, I only noticed the rather obvious face
on the north side, near the base of the tree
, for the first time the other day.
