Something tells me that this is not a practice unique to the United States (and perhaps relates somehow to the cave paintings in France and Spain, the petroglyphs in the American Southwest and in Australia), and probably on trees everywhere. Then again, maybe not. I would like to hear. The urge to leave one's mark.....and to mark romance. The conclusion of the Pennypack Park series continues a bit longer, though no longer about reflections. I leave once again tomorrow, to return early next week. My last craft show of the year.....and snow forecast for Saturday.

The oldest 'graffiti' I have seen was in the Orkney Islands, where messages and signatures go back to the Stone Age.
The Vikings were also very prolific and, translated, were quite, um, graphic..!
Lovers carving their initials in a tree is very romantic though - and I like the sheer romance of your image, Peter Smile

Yup. It keeps happening in the UK, too. See my shot of Rosa, here, and the way someone has defaced a beauty spot... Really defaced!

Not Stone Age, but distinctly Neandethal thinking. Especially the twits with the spray cans...

Trees seem to have a spiritual nature in some parts of the world Peter, they tie pieces of cloth to the branches for many different reasons, it can be dangerous I carved the love of my life and my name on a tree! The Wife spotted it (Ouch)

I think the tree could probably tell some tales. Nice creative take on a lovely woodland scene. Smile
