Beware What You Find In The Woods

A walk in an English country wood oughtn’t produce too many surprises (an unexpected early bloom, perhaps, or some delicate plant that’s really rare . . .) But this is what I found when I took a woodland walk at North Burlingham, east of Norwich, Easter weekend.

Strange man in woods

Is that a man hiding behind that tree? Strange.

Tree Face

As for this . . . is that a happy-smiley face?

Elephant face tree

And an elephant? Surely not?

    For years, the Fortean Times has run “simulacra” photos. You might consider submitting one of these.

    Definitely an elephant. What fun finds!

      It was actually a pine tree (don’t ask me what sort). I don’t know the origin of the painted post. There were several strategically placed around the woods. I assume the work of a local artist. No doubt at one time there was a sign to explain, but if so the vandals had had it away.
      Oh, and sorry for delay in responding . . . laptop died! Now sorted with a very attractive purple HP!

        What a cool artistic project, to leave interesting things for people to find in the woods. Sorry to hear about your computer problems, eek! Glad you got them sorted. 🙂

        That’s what we thought. Shame there was no info about the artist, though. As to the IT problem . . .guess what I shall be doing for the next couple of days! Luckily, everything was saved (I think).

        I hope everything was indeed saved; it’s so heart-wrenching when a computer dies like that! And yes, it does take quite a while to get everything back into order with the new machine. Good luck getting all your programs and settings and such worked out!
