Tree with an Elbow

This tree is on the boundary of our property.  Well the trunk is on the boundary and the elbow is in our paddock.

On the left of the photo you can see the fence and tree trunk. 

This is the elbow resting in our paddock.  The tree is very old and I guess a branch became heavy and rested on the ground. Then the branch grew some more away from the trunk.  We collect a few bags of pine cones each year.

Trees like this are special and have a little magic about them.  At the farm in Stawell we had the "Elephant" tree.  My Mum used to take the grandchildren to play under the elephant tree. They have such fond memories of the walk around the dam to the tree.  As a child I also used to walk to the elephant tree but always checking that the bull wasn't in the paddock.
