Oak trees

This is a favourite bench under an oak tree where I have sat to eat my lunch, on many of my rounds as a District Nurse. It seems a little silly to talk of saying farewell to hedgerows and trees but I often think a community is made up of these non-human elements as much as it is by conversations at the Post Office. I said goodbye to this tree during my last week and wondered how many other District Nurses have sat here over the years, with their flask and their sandwiches.

There is a rather beautiful walled garden for me to sit in and eat my lunch outside my new office, and a whole new bunch of leafy, local characters to get to know!
