I walked in the wood behind the house this morning. No camera but my phone. I kept looking at the trees. Close up and gazing up to their fingertips. I looked at bark, roots, leaves, residents, hangers on….. anything the trees had on offer.
In the middle stands a yew. The only one in the wood that I have found so far. A rubber tyre on a rope hangs nearby. A children’s haunt. A rope climbing frame too. In the wild. It doesn’t look especially ancient but it’s a fine tree. I took a few other shots. Magical light today. I wonder what other walkers would think if they saw me crouched down, phone on the wet ground.
Trees and me, we gotta thing going.
