Oak on a frosty morning
This oak has made a little green circle for itself in the frosted grass. While some of its relatives (in the distance, right) are still green, this one has already turned tawny and its leaves are just starting to thin out. The gap in its silhouette (bottom right) shows where it lost a huge bough one still August evening a few years ago. We were glad that there weren’t any cows under it at the time.
