I pass this old tree regularly when walking on the Old Hills. It’s amazing!

 

The main trunk is split down the middle, the centre is rotting and its hollow in places, yet in summer there is new growth on the upper branches and it’s leaves mingle with the others from the surrounding trees.

 

I’ve watched the fungi growing in the rotten, hollow trunk all this week and thought it was something worth sharing.  Nature’s ability to persist is fascinating.
