PHOTO PROMPT Copyright-Madison Woods The photo is actually from Lura Helms for whom I have no link.
The tree has never bloomed. Only crows and vultures perch on it and rats have eaten away its roots. Yet the tree lives on. It is known to casts a long shadow on a moonless night; and those who dared to stand in it simply disappeared.
The higher branches were once used for punishing people suspected of practising witchcraft. They were hanged with their toe-nails just scraping the ground. Any attempt to support the body-weight would break their neck-bone resulting in a long and painful death.
Many claim there is a direct access to fourth ditch from this tree.
