Sucking LIfe

When one of our flowering trees died last year, we topped it and left the trunk to act as a support for Morning Glories. Over winter, some fungus found the dead trunk to be a perfect host. Now it is sucking life out of the once living tree. Even in death, there is new life. 

It is interesting how the shell-like fungus lines up in a row, like hockey fans lining up for their beer at the local arena. 
But this too will run its course. The fungus will dry up, the tree will rot, and they will all return to dust.
