This giant old man maple rises up out of the narrow strip of soil between the sidewalk and the street, his roots forming a great mossy mound that has caused humans to repave around it many times over the hundred or so years of his existence. I'm convinced he watches over the neighborhood, so I greet him with a kind thought and pat his rough coat of bark whenever I pass by. Click here to see more.
