The beauty of wood. Too big to pick up and hug, I was smitten with this piece.
There is something about wood, that even though it is hard to the touch, I feel its strength yet, somehow it radiates to me warmth and vitality. I would have spent more time just absorbing the story lines in each piece, however, time did not permit.
Had someone been around to ask I would have eagerly asked about the now “dismantled” tree.. I knew I could not bring any piece no matter how small home. Thank goodness for my Huawei.

That piece of wood has such character. We have a similar log (but not heart shaped). It would cost a small fortune to ship it to you…maybe more than a small fortune. Cheers!
it would never get past customs.. the picture will do. it was wasn’t it -muah
It looks like it was a sugar maple. They often get heart rot. 😦
would a sugar maple get that big? loved the colouring
Yes, they can grow quite large and can live a century or more. There is one up the road that must be at least 6 feet across. I call it Grandmother Tree. 🙂
Well seen and photographed
Wow, that wood looks like a crystal geode. The kind of mineral you’d crack open and find amethyst inside, something like that. Instead of the crystal there’s a space where the lifeblood of the tree has been removed. What a magical space! I find the spaces of life at least as interesting as the surrounds. For instance, if you remove the spaces from a paragraph, the whole meaning takes ages to fathom out. *hhuugggsss*
wasn’t it amazing, had I been able to acquire it, (live in the States) I would have tried. It was a true gem. Muah
