    Wow, I've not seen that Mig. I think it is good they are supporting it and not allowing it to collapse. Thanks for sharing it.

    Is that your OH having a rest? :lol:

    Thanks, mig, for bringing back some happy memories. My younger son has a book on special UK trees and this one is in it. There are some amazing UK trees.

    Enjoy the wedding!

    What a lovely setting for a wedding.
