Here is one I like. Old resilient cherry tree in my parents’ house backyard. It
kept losing branches in ice storms, but it always recovered. I spent time as a kid wedged in comfortable ergonomic positions amongst its branches. In the summer, it was a private nest in which to hide under the umbrella of leaves, eating the dangling juicy cherries, and peering out into the larger world beyond.
