If you ever wondered what a real tree looks like, one that hasn't been lopped, pollarded and mutilated by human hands, we are lucky to still be able to find untouched wild specimens in our countryside. I love to walk, as you may know by now, and without my escapades into fields and valleys, I would be most unhappy. In our fast and furious world, it is good to remind ourselves from time to time what a tree should look like. A love of nature is one of the ways to discover how blessed we are to be part of this world, as artificial, chaotic and crazy as it is.
