We’ve known each other for just over a decade, though the oak has lived for at least ten times that.

It’s a tree and a very special place in the landscape. It’s conveniently at the end of our shorter dog-walk, so I get to see it in all seasons. This time of year is mellow, and the colours in the landscape reflect that.

Soon, we will enter the pre-autumnal days, and the full and deep greens of summer will fade and die – a poignant time of year.

Nature’s round…

But the oak will still be here. And we’ll still be talking to each other at the farthest point of walking the dog.
