My Favourite Tree Number One
Christine McMullen describes her favourite tree, an Ash Tree outside the entrance to St Peter's Church, Fairfield
This ash tree is outside the entrance to St Peters Church, Fairfield. The photo was taken last July. It is wonderful tree and people pass it when coming to find peace in church, visiting the churchyard or waiting under it when they come with babies for baptism or as bridesmaids to weddings or to say grieving farewells to family members and friends at funerals.
I like the breadth of the shelter of the tree and the dappled sunshine and shade which symbolically affects the lives of all of us.
