fdelano Posted January 25, 2013 Share Posted January 25, 2013 Along the Road Black walnut fruit, from rows of ancient twisted trees, pruned yearly to allow passage along the country road, still falls copiously to the macadam road to blacken from bright green hulls, smashed by tires, unheeded and unwanted. Luckily for numerous competing plants, the poisonous excretions seldom reach fertile ground, instead covering the right-of-way of walkers and drivers who have no intention of striving to reach the rich meat of the well-protected balls, gifts unopened, without resentment. Drivers and pedestrians crush or kick aside the supposed debris impediments. Early settlers of the land, especially and carefully planted germs to produce a row of protective shade and dependable nourishment along the boundaries of property. The value of the trees now lies only in the admiration of passers by. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
