Walnut Tree

This old walnut tree stands in a nearby park, the remnant of an old aristocratic estate which is open to local residents. We’ve gathered baskets of walnuts from this tree for many years, sat under its shade in summer, watched it bloom in spring. Looking at it now, I have the sinking feeling that it may not be with us for much longer. I take it in every time I pass by, remembering it in every season.
