“PEE PINE”

 

Hi, everybody,

I would like to share the picture I made this afternoon of my small 35cm/14inch  Pinus sylvestris, that I found and collected In Austria in May 2004. Well, that I found, is not completely true! My wife actually drew my intention to this tree first! We were taking a well-deserved rest after a long climb up one of the many beautiful mountains surrounding the cabin where we stayed that week. And while my wife was enjoying the magnificent views, I  took the opportunity  to get rid off some excess water that  I had drunk so much off along the long way up (if you know what I mean?) I was just taking my position, when my wife said “you might want to lift your left foot” ?! I looked down to discover that I was standing on a small Pine, that I totally had  not knottiest,  because of  the high grass it grew in. So now you know why it is called “PEE PINE”! I collected the tree without any problem and it has been growing well ever since.This small tree has wonderful old bark, for such a small tree and a beautiful old “Shari” running along most off its trunk. Off course,  this tree needs more years, for the branches to mature and to reduce the needle size, bud I am already pretty pleased with the image this small tree suggests. I hope you like it?
