The oak tree in January

A very busy December meant I failed to take any photographs of the oak tree but in early January the rain stopped long enough for the soft winter sun to come out.
All the leaves and acorns have long since gone and it is the wide trunk and twisting branches that catch the eye.

The holly growing within the roots that is flourishing and still has some berries.

As the year has come to a close here is a round up of the oak tree’s year.

This is the last ‘Tree Following‘ post for this blog, but I will be continuing to ‘Follow a Tree’ (currently a copper beech) over on Slate Grey, Lime and Hay
