Quite by random falling down the internet rabbit hole, I came across 'Tree Following' and decided that I would join in.

A rather mixed bag of weather this month so far, from sublime mild spring days to a week of wild, wet and windy weather. The tree still seems static although other species, predominantly the mid story and shrubby trees, around it are quietly 'waking up'.
A month on and despite the weather - there is a hint of spring, may be it is to do with the increasing light levels or the clearness of the sky.
Not much change to the tree, as is expected however, it is dry and not encrusted in ice.
The tree itself is quietly sloughing off shards of bark - a natural self-cleansing process done by trees. It is a slow movement and the gaps under the lifting bark gives shelter to small insects.
I chose this rather magnificent stately creature in Rhyddings Park, Oswaldtwistle , Lancashire. Meet 'my' tree.
