Olá Pedro, Quem è o cavalheiro que está a avaliar a idade do castanheiro? È ele o tal amigo que Abre e fecha a dita cancela? Até já, Eduardo.

Exactamente Eduardo!

Este é justamente o companheiro que abertou a dita cancela. Note que leva o mapa e uma pequeno mochila.

Na minha mochila levo (como dizer em ingles) todos menos a banca da cozinha!

O meu companheiro não está bem no momento e espero que obta algum benefício pela árvore!

Até breve Pedrão

Hi Peter!It is real mighty english oak!The personification of english land!I try to say!:)

Hi Diggory

I understand what you mean, that the Oak tree typifies the English landscape.

Here is a link to the Natural History and ancient wisdom, that explains much better than I could!

Regards Peter

Hi Peter I just love to see old oak trees, we have a few very old ones in Leicestershire, next time that I visit the Tamwrth area, I will take a closer look now that the Oak is a couple of years older.(Like) Regards Bob
