1 Brush 4 Every Tree?

Eagle gets full credit for this one. As we entered the car after visiting the library last week they said, “Do you see that?”

“See what?”

They pointed, “On the tree.”

Something was perfectly camouflaged, if anything was there at all. I got out of the car and stood. “There’s nothing there.”

“There is,” Eagle affirmed. I walked up to the tree to get a closer look. On a nubbin of a former branch hung a weathered wooden brush with natural bristles. Hair brush? Dog brush? Siberian tiger toothbrush?

“There is something, you’re right!”

What do you think? What are your guesses?

  1. Where did it come from?
  2. What was it for?

  1. I suspect your title refers to “A chicken for every pot.”

    My favorite is the 4th black and white close up, Rebecca. Excellent! That’s where the texture really pops, and we can forget about the dirt. (Just what has that brush been brushing?) Lol

    (Sorry for posting twice. Somehow my first one got completely mangled when sending. Could you delete it, please?)

  2. That is an interesting tree-brush combo indeed! There’s got to be a story in it… Just in case it is a Siberian tiger’s toothbrush, you may want to keep your distance and observe from a safe vantage point!

  3. I can’t tell you what kind of brush it is/was. I was just relieved to learn it was hanging on the nubbin of an old branch! When I first saw the photo, I was afraid someone had pounded a nail into the poor tree! Whew!
