Sunday Trees – 356

….saying good-bye to an old friend

Today as I was packing up the car to leave the cottage I heard a crack and when I turned around I saw the two main branches of the old beech come crashing down. There was no wind and no rain at the time. I guess the core of the tree had become weak or infested and just couldn’t bare the weight anymore.P1070028
