Sorta Dwarf Ent.

No matter...retirement situation looks fine, with all those groupies hanging about.
Bill Phillips: Bit of a dead ent
Nice framing Bill... but i think that your tree here is short a few branches to make it into the Lord of the Ringsgrin....petersmile
Bill Phillips: I think being dead didn't help Peter grin

In my imagination (although no Tolkien- fan-reader) the thousand year old Ent looks very lively and communicative, and I can hear him talking with the manicured bush that is dreaming of a some wilder, more thrilling life than to stand in a formal garden. A fine observation!

Errr...no. I think I may go on holiday with Mr Shaw for an EXTENDED VACATION!
Bill Phillips: Good idea
ARE YOU BLAMING YOUR BAD BACK SYMPTOMS FOR POSTING THIS .... oops caps sorry.
Bill Phillips: I am blaming Mick Shaw.
Probably because it was dead Bill!
Bill Phillips: It didn't help
I'm not familiar with Lord of the Rings, I tried but couldn't get in to it. Suffice it to say that I do like the old dead tree.
Bill Phillips: I have read the books and seen the films which i also have on DVD and might watch again one day!
You can tell that rejection caused it to lose its head!
Bill Phillips: haha! Took it badly

This one looks a little damaged - no doubt by Saruman the White. Incidentally Isengard is a metaphor for the evil effects of industrialisation that Tolkien had witnessed in the West Midlands in the early 20thC
Bill Phillips: Tolkein came from Sarehole mill in Birmingham and a number of locations in that area and Hall Green /Weoley Castle are part of the hobbit and LOTR. A far cry from the sweeping New Zealand landscapes of the films!
