In 1834 Sir T Dick Lauder wrote: “There is now standing, and in fine foliage, although the trunk is quite hollow, an immense yew tree, which measures 37 feet in circumference and the limbs are proportionately large. The tree is entered by means of a rustic gate; and seventeen people lately breakfasted in its interior.”
Chris: That's a good idea, a fry up, somewhere different..
That is difficult to comprehend. If only it could talk!
Chris: Sometimes I get a few words out of her, usually about horses..

Stunning age....
Chris: Difficult to comprehend really..
What a wonder! The tree has an unusual shape but I suppose if you are 4000 years old, a lot could have happened to create that shape
Chris: Oh a great deal..
May it live on for another 4,000 years.
Chris: Yes indeed Brian
The human being doesn't look THAT old?
Chris: But certainly getting on a bit..

Oh, sorry, that I didn't recognise correctly Jackie. I thought of Kathy who likes to embrace trees.
Chris: You thought of KATY
