In an open field near where I live, there stands a row of evergreens... like sentinels but what are they guarding? All about the same size and in a perfectly straight line.
I have often wanted to ask the farmer if he knows the history of these trees. I have to think that at one time, a house stood here. Nature did not plant these trees...only man would have planted them in such a straight line. Isn't this what Nasa always looks for on another planet...some remnant left behind in a geometric design? Knowing that if a geometric form is observed...it could not be a natural, random, chance occurrence. They stand on a slight knoll with nothing on either side, almost like some sort of barrier to the outside world. I posted a photo earlier of a grove of trees in an open field but they were a scattered group with no pattern, probably was part of a larger woods at one time and then cut down for farming. But these...these were put there for a purpose in another time. I know in the big picture, this is a trivial thought but still I question the reason.
