The theme on The Gallery this week is trees. This is my favourite trees. The photo was taken in January 2008, during one of our family walks and it was actually taken by the big one, then aged three. It’s amazingly accurate and all the more special because it is HER tree. The letter that has been rather crudely painted onto the bark is the first letter of her name and it appeared at a time when she was just learning her letters and sounds. It was magical to her.
The tree is still there today and we always snap it if we have a camera handy. I like the way the roots are exposed for all to see and yet it still stands tall and proud. The big one’s tree.
