When Sunday was so wet and miserable, I had feared that today's walk might be cancelled. But no, the weather gods relented, and sent us sunshine instead.

Thanks M R. I remember that in Norfolk one of our large Beech trees had a similar looking growth about ten feet up. Eventually the tree snapped at that point ( not in a strong wind, as I recall). I su ...
