Snowy Sister Oak?
Comments(4) # Snowy Sister Oak? london e11

I'm sure you were expecting to see the LDNP Oak shrouded in snow today but no, this is one of her sisters. It was going to be the LDNP Oak but I rather liked the snow blown up the trunk on this one, so here she is. On the subject of the LDNP Oak, Uphilldowndale asked how old I thought she was (LDNP Oak, not Uphill'). Well I don't know but, after looking around, I found this document relating an Oak's girth to its age. Sadly, today I forgot to take a bit of string with me and all my brief hug of the tree and knowing my arm span suggests, is that she's well over 100. Next time I go I'll perform a more accurate measurement and let you all know just how old she is. Guesses most welcome in the meantime....there have been quite a lot of photos of her by now! Yes, for those not in the know, it snowed rather a lot in London yesterday. The whole place ground to a halt. Ah, well. Canon EOS 5D
