The body in the woods

A startling discovery by the banks of the Campbell River ...

Body in a tree bark suit, abandoned among the dead leaves of last fall.

Maybe it's an alien from outer space; it has no hands, and there's something growing out of its upper chest area.

Or maybe I should step back and look at the whole complex.

Oh.

The bark on the roots looks like birch bark, but the trunk bark and the growth pattern says "willow".

  3. If this was ginseng, it'd cost a fortune.

Also, I have word verification on, because I found out that not only do I get spam without it, but it gets passed on to anyone commenting in that thread. Not cool!
