A walk in the woods

Another wet and miserable day today but a walk in the woods cheered me up. The bulbs are well on their way now and even a few funghi attempt to brighten up a dull day.

In the middle of our little woodland stands a very large, old beech tree. She has a huge hole in her trunk, big enough for a small child to fit into and even walk through to the other side.  A few tree surgeons have said she ought to be felled but the Grand Old Lady stands firm, with no other sign of rot and every year she has a beautiful, healthy canopy of leaves.  So, she stays exactly where she is and will for many years to come (hopefully).
