Nature Beings Family in a Sweet Gum Tree

Here is a portrait of a nature being family whose home address is a sweet gum tree. The tree is on a back path at Stoneleigh Natural Gardens, Villanova, PA, at the crux of the main path and a side path that leads to the stone remains of a small home, probably belonging to a long-ago estate worker and his family. This gentle, peaceful nature being family now happily occupies the area.
