The Bird Who Swallowed a Frog
This image grew at the base of a Grandmother Cottonwood tree. The cottonwood has heart shaped leaves that rustle in the wind, much like an aspen. It is Native American lore that the cottonwood is a messenger tree – the rustling heart-shaped leaves indicate it is carrying prayers from humans to the Great Spirit, and is also sending messages back from the Great Spirit to humans.
