Is it weird that I have a favourite tree? I like to think we all do! I visit mine every time I'm home. He's a big old oak located in the demesne of Malahide Castle. His outstretched arms always seem to invite hugs. I have no idea how old he is - the oldest parts of the castle date to the 12th Century and it belonged to the Talbot family. The groundskeepers have given my old oak a crutch since I last saw him.. but it only makes him all the more dapper.
