A Sad Tale (Part 2)
On 31 May Matthew Oates and Hannah (my yet-to-be-indoctrinated 'other half') returned to the 'Magic Sallow' in search of Lord Lucan, or any of his sibling larvae. Not only did he fail to show, but I am sad to report the demise of this once proud tree. It has been maliciously stripped of its bark by one or more squirrels and is now at least 50% dead wood. Needless to say I have now cancelled my subscription to the 'Tufty Club'.
