Ancient Oak beside the River Usk.
Wow, Judith. This really is a huge tree! It's simply fantastic. .... Are you sure that the person in the photo isn't simply a tee-niny tiny teeny weeny person? ;)
Hi ~Jean~ I too was very impressed with the size of the tree & wondered old it might be! The wee lady is my 92yr young mother:>))She used to be 5'2'' but has shrunk with age :0( now approx 4'7'' (my dog ~ not interested in the tree is off sniffing in the background!)Thank you for your lovely comment
its not just amazing tree but amazing woman too!! best wishes from me!
Unda My mum is an amazing wee lady. Thank you for best wishes. Judith
Hello Judith Davis,
A fantastic tree, i never sow something like this!
I am happy that you make a picture of this tree!
Judith dropping in on your gallery to comment on the pretty lady here and this magnificent old tree. How fortunate to still have your 92 yr old mum. I lost mine at age 88...She was small too, she too shrank as she approached this age. THis is a great shot, one to be cherished.
warmest regards/Sarah Georgia, USA
Thank you for dropping in Sarah O
I feel very fortunate to have a "fit" mum.(sadly lost my dad when I was 22) Wish we didn't live so far away from each other 360 miles between our homes! I shall cherish this & others. Best wishes
Thats another super old Oak I will have to visit before I am 21 again.Thanks for sharing with the group.(Like2)
Saludos JudeD. Un árbol impresionante. Me gusta. ¿Se trata de un Quercus robur?
Hello Judith, having a browsing day and am not sure why I haven't seen this photograph previously. I'm pleased I wasn't the first to comment, because Peggy and I have both enjoyed reading what people have since said. Best Wishes. Roy and Peggy.
Thank you moris f.javier Yes i believe it is * Quercus robur* Best wishes, from Judith.
Thanks RoY & Peggy A treasured photo. Sadly 'wee lady' no longer fit as when this taken. Mum appears in quite a few photos. Was a great walker. No cure for old age. I am fotunate she kept so fit for so long. Regards Judith
Such a wonderful tree picture that fit so well into the "One Tree to see only" tree group album.
Thank you Bob for the invite & your lovely comments.
This is close to Usk Valley walk (long distance foot path) Since taking this the area with the tree has been fence off so reaching it one would have to negotiate through barbed wire, but still the tree can be seen from the footpath. Regards Judith
