My words, thoughts and photos from a Swedish perspective

A vicious tree

Träd Rosendal 2

Okay, many of you will probably say that a tree cannot be evil and I can agree to a certain extent, but who knows what powers it may possess? Long ago, people used to put sticks said to carry their aches and pains in trees they regarded as suitable for that particular purpose and they believed that this would cure them. The one who dared to cut down an “ache tree” would be get all the aches and pains stored in the tree as punishment.

I don’t know what history this tree has, but it looked but spooky and a little vicious to me and of course I felt that I simply had to take a photo of it.
