Wow, that's probably the oldest holly tree I have ever seen. Like it!

Regards, Rosa.

Hi Rosa While out walking the unexplored villages along their footpaths and bridleways you never know like life, what to expect around the next corner, even the pathway to Kirby Mallory village church consists of a fine avenue of large holly trees. Thanks for the Like. Regards Bob

Wonderful intersting 'tree' Bob. I wonder how old this one is! We seem to enjoy similar interests. I am always stopping to photograph trees & old buildings/churches. Best wishes Judith. With thanks for stopping by some of my photos.

Hi Judith I was stumped and surprised by this old Holly tree clump I can only estimate its age at 180 years plus. I main interests with photography are Trees and Village churches. If you would consider joining one of my trees groups you would be most welcome. Regards Bob

I like your humorous titles too.

Hi Judith Some trees are always worth a second visit although 10 minutes would be better, if you need time to take a snap. Regards Bob
