We have had a wonderful week of sunshine and the trees are in full bloom. I took a short walk yesterday through the park and stood admiring the wonderful chestnut trees. These trees are very old with gnarled trunks so next time I must make sure I take my camera with me. They reminded me of a trip to Chatsworth when I was a tree warden. We were taken to a private part of the estate to see some very old trees, many of which were fallen sideways but still living. Here is a photo of a fallen one showing its large roots.
