2000 Year Old Yew Tree

This tree in Totteridge is reputed to be 2000 years old. It must have lived through so much change- and it's still sprouting new growth. Decorated by fairy lights in the churchyard, it loomed out of the drizzle as a majestic reminder of the passing of time and the ultimate insignificance of humanity with our silly little lives, staring at miniature screens so hard that a lot of the time we don't notice the beauty around us. Big guy, we noticed you yesterday in your rainy garden, and we love you.
