    Beautiful photos for the oak tree story! Maple is our Canadian symbol but oak trees dot the neighbourhoods here and over there in such a stately way! Great to see! πŸ™‚

      Hi Patricia. Thank you so much. I love the old trees here in England, but I also love the maples and firs of Canada. We don’t tend to have any sugar maples in Vancouver, but I dream of a time when I can take a cabin in the Laurentians and be there painting for a couple months during the autumn. πŸ˜€

    Oaks and your photos are beautiful with all of the glorious texture! There are a few oak trees in the city close to where I live, but mostly Plains Cottonwood trees. There is one close to two hundred years old in a park near the river. It is absolutely stunning with all its crooks and bends and thick bark. Trees are truly remarkable!

      I think so too Renee. There are giant, hundred year old coniferous trees in Van, but only Europe gets these granddaddies deciduous ones. Here they can be 6-7 hundred years old easily. I know the oldest tree in Britain is a yew and is between 3000 and 5000 years old! πŸ˜€
