Some of the best trees have a backdrop of an old chapel or an ancient cemetery. This little beauty is situated in a lovely garden just outside the National Cathedral. The garden has a certain nostalgia about it, as many gardens do, and there are a few hidden areas along stone paths that make it feel quite like a secret garden. Perhaps one day I'll have a large garden in my back yard with a stone pool and fountains and trees and secret paths.
I'd expect to see a tree with this type of personality to be much, much older and wiser. It looks almost too small and thin to have such ancient looking, gnarled branches. It's like when you see a baby and it looks just like an old man. An old man in the body of a small child. It's sort of creepy.
