Twisted Chestnut Tree

In the front pasture there is an old chestnut tree,
whose gray trunk and branches twist and turn,
as they spread out.
When the leaves turn and begin to fall,
the wonderful bones of this old tree are revealed.

  1. This tree has so much character! I love the autumn colours and brushwork on the leaves.
