The Man In The Oak Tree

I was sat under one of our old oak trees at the weekend.
When I looked up I decided that it's "face" didn't look to happy!
This is a beautiful old tree and I'm fairly sure it's hollow all the way down. I must climb it one day, or get my brother to! We are lucky to have such interesting trees on our land, this old oak is slowly dieing as it's hundreds of years are drawing to a close, maybe we will be it's last custodian or maybe it will out live me yet. 
Can everyone else see the face or am I just being odd?



P.S Sorry to the person who posted on this when blogger put it up too soon the other day - I seem to have lost your comment.

  1. Yes I can see him. It reminds me of a green man. Often featured in ancient building architecture.

  2. Yes, I see the face too.
    I wonder if you might be able to salvage any wood from this tree, if it has to be cut down.

    1. Hopefully it will never be cut down. We've about 9 enchant oaks on our land and I'll do what I can to make sure they live as long as possible.

  3. Our ancestors would have seen magic in a tree like that, trees were special.

  5. Do you think that he is related to Treebeard, I am certain That your tree was an extra in Lord of The Rings. His face is much clearer in the long shot.

    1. Ah, sorry I lost your comment and thank you for commenting again. It seems I made a mistake when I secluded this post for later in the week. I can see the samurai as well, ready to draw his sword.
