Playing Possum

I swore this tree died in the last cold snap in January. It began to get hollowed and break apart, and just when I was about to “pull the weeds” all around it, my daughter looked at me and said, “Mommy, those aren’t weeds, those are new branches.”

Upon further inspection, I noticed that she was right. We now have a very healthy set of branches growing from the root system of this tree, while the initial trunk has fallen to pieces in further decay.
