The Giving Tree
“And the boy loved the tree.......very much. And the tree was happy.”
― Shel Silverstein, The Giving Tree
This is the tree that is growing into the headstone from yesterday's post but I felt the tree needs a post all its own because well, all 200 year old trees should be the center of attention after all.
If y'all have been following along you know that the church there is the
Fincastle United Methodist Church.
"The original building, very similar to the present structure, was erected shortly after the land was purchased from Patrick Lockhart and his wife for 12 pounds on July 12, 1803."
So that must be when they planted this amazing tree, or right around there.
(Remember the present structure was built in 1840)
Many people believe trees are Sentient Beings. Do you? As for me, I like to think so!
