The Magnificent Tree

| Friday 17th November, 2023

On my walk into town there is a HUGE London Plane tree. I never really noticed it for years, then one day it was suddenly front of my consciousness.

I followed the trunk up to the first branches about 2 storeys up, then followed the curve of the branches even higher. And they curved right over and got thinner and lower and thinner and lower until there were leaves at the end that I could touch from the ground.

I was blown away by its magnificence and am awestruck every single time I walk past it (or preferably under it.

I can’t help wondering what it has seen over the years.
