SOMERSET LEVELS 261 – BROKEN BRANCH (MONO)
April 6, 2016 8 Comments
A little tree beside a water-filled ditch, in a place I often frequent. It was most probably planted here to help stabilise the waterway’s soft bank but now, as it gets bigger and heavier, its roots have more and more of a struggle to keep it upright in the soft, black, peaty and ever moist soil. Its like trying to firmly anchor yourself in wet blancmange and, sooner or later, gravity will – catastrophically – take over.
