A Little Prop


I'm not sure what was going on here, but apparently either one or both of these trees needed to be stabilized at some point. I hope the tree on the left isn't depending on the tree on the right, because I think it has seen better days.

Both look perilously close to the house.

Hmmm...that is interesting and strange.

Part of an old swing set?

RedPat said...

Very odd indeed!

That is a bit strange, but I would guess it was the healthier tree on the left helping prop up the one on the right.

Maybe it was used as a high bar for pole vaulters preparing for the Olympics. Well, hey, that could be the case! :)

Could be something gymnastic? A mystery..

I notice the lower branches have been trimmed. In our school, some kids climbed bout 5 stories. I had to wait and tell them how high they climbed.

I would think it was once a swing set.
