ABC Wednesday - Uprooted

The uprooted tree has missed the old barn and is gently decaying amongst the foxgloves. 
This one may have been uprooted but its tap-root remains underground so being resilient and adaptable it continues to grow towards the sun while the sheep (whose hooves make them ugulates), take shelter from the midday heat.

Very good subject for the letter U! The sheep are certainly taking advantage of it!

Wonderfully perfect shots.

Uprooted is okay as far as it is used for trees, but hopefully we, humans, will not share their fate.
Thanks for your participation. Have a great day!

I love to see when trees that are knocked down, get back up and start over in their own resilient way!

This uprooted tree is so cool, the sheep look so pleased to the under the shade of the new limbs.
