My Tree

I think I’ve written before about the tree outside my house. I can’t be technical and tell you what kind of tree it is; it is just a tree which is very much appreciated by me. During lockdown, in the last twelve months I have been photographing it at regular intervals. At the moment it is at it’s best; all the leaves bright green and healthy. Fortunately autumn is still a long way off.

One of the reasons I started to photo it (there wasn’t much else to see) because it is increasing greatly in size. I’m afraid the council might cut it down, or at least cut it back drastically. If there was no tree I would just be looking at the house opposite and a tree is always more beautiful. Once it’s gone, it’s gone. It will be too late to take a picture of it then.

This has happened before. I came home one day and a tree had been cut down. It was too late to do anything about it. Nature and of course, God gives us something that nothing else can.
