Old Man Oak
After visiting the 1,000+ year oak tree in Silton, just down the road was this very old oak, that seems to have grown a face!

Strangely enough.............on that old oak, the face looks completely natural. What a great find and a really impressive looking tree. I bet it's seen a few things over the years!

The wider view in the first PiP is lovely, and I really like the sheep statues in the second PiP especially the light, which is gorgeous.

A cracking series Rosa!

Rosalyn Hilborne club has replied to Keith Burton club
Even in profile it looked like a face Keith! Thank you for your kind comments on all the pictures. I wondered why the sheep were there. It's apparently a 6 mile cycling route called Silton Sheep Route!

I was pleased to have found this oak Carol, and in such a lovely setting. I wondered why the sheep were there and on looking it up, they are on a cycling route of 6 miles called The Silton Sheep Route ;-) I did see 6 cyclists! Thank you for your kind comments and I wish you a good week too.

Baa !!!! Very old oaks seem prone to strange growth I assume it's caused by some sort of insect damage when they were young. I hope your week has started pleasantly Rosalyn
