Today I have a tree from my travels. It is a new and hence unfamiliar species to me so I will just go with sharing images of a glorious really old tree.
Without much ado.. .here we go.. This is a tree from the 18th century that has its home at the Cardiff Castle in Cardiff.
It is a Holm Oak which is apparently the Quercus ilex of the Fagaceae family.
