A Square of Rings

Tree rings of a giant sequoia, ancient trees that grow only in a narrow altitude band in the Sierra Nevada mountain range in California. They are some of the oldest living things on the planet. Can you count the years this one survived by the rings?

Join Becky’s July Squares: TreeSquare. It must be square and it must related to or contain a tree or an aspect of a tree.


I used to work with Sequoia Tourism, and that is what we advertized, 3 days to see three National Parks. I didn’t spend as much time as I should have there, but I did have a lovely two days of photography with friends in two of them.


What a great job. I am not generally a “woo-woo” person but I do think the trees talk to you. πŸ™‚ Lately they have been learning curse words. πŸ™‚

LOL The ones in the forest fires have certainly been cursing. Probably a few of the really thirsty ones have been cursing, too. Trees with litter at their feet, damning litterers. I hadn’t ever thought of trees cursing. I saw some burned ones today, dead trees lying on the ground unburied. They probably had a lot to say about that in tree language.
