Dead Wood

The Gidleigh Goat’s favourite tree has been savagely dismembered; quite a shock for both of us. Only one sculptural trunk remains, greatly reducing its presence among the quiet conifers.

But it’s not all bad news – this arborial atrocity was committed with good intentions; the crown of the oak has a healthy display of leafage basking in the November sun, suggesting there is life in the old goat yet.
