Skywatch Friday - Sun Block

Baginton Oak in the Village of Baginton

This photo was taken in early November.  It is the Baginton Oak and (hang on to your hat) is 300 to 350 years old and said to be one of the oldest trees in the County of Warwickshire.   We do have the occasional very hot day.  I think this would be a fine source of shade on such a day :).


Clouds are doing a pretty good job of blocking the blue sky in Coventry.  I am going to follow this link to see sky photos from around the world - SKYWATCH FRIDAY. Join me!

Have a wonderful weekend.

I absolutely love old trees like this, we have a few here in Pert, not quite as old as these, but a good 150 years, amazing to think of the changes that have occurred around them hey!
