Today’s Picture: 04 May 20

Encountered these two ancient sentinels on a path new to us today. I wonder what tales they could tell.

Ancient oaks. Lord Nelson wanted the forest protected so he could have oak to build his marine fleet.

    1. Aye, Lynette. Trouble was, he wanted the forest to be designated a ‘Royal Forest’ so that local people wouldn’t then be able to to use it for grazing their pigs, picking windfall branches for firewood, or hunting the native deer!

    1. This was a new path for us, Joni. We ‘discovered’ it when we took a walk along one of the paths we’ve used only once before. Turned out to be a real find. I see the older oaks as such characterful trees.
