    A lovely scene….don’t think I’d ever tire of it either. That huge tree must provide lots of cooling shade in the summer.

  • Yes the tree is massive Marsha and it has the most fantastic Autumn colours and the sun sets behind it at times………….glorious.

    Snow is the icing on the cake! Completely lovely!

  • Thank you Marriet. I think it could be the oldest house on our street.
