Now & Then (Pine Tree)

Lonely pine tree in a harvested wheat field

Now – August 2017

A lonely bent pine now stands amongst the stubble of a harvested wheat field. It is the only survivor of a handsome clump of trees that stood among the wheat seven years before. I seem to remember several winters ago catching glimpses through the hedgerow of a large fallen tree as the bus passed along the lane. Everything changes.
