Leeds Churchyard Tree Identification

Picture of Leeds churchyard tree identification post.

This is the last in a short series of pictures from the churchyard of the Church of St.John the Evangelist, Wortley

This picture shows one of a number of name posts scattered around the churchyard enabling visitors to identify the various trees, shrubs etc that are growing here.

This post in front of a tall, old tree reads..

fraxinus excelsior

Common native tree easily identified in Winter
by its very dark buds. Mature trees are a favourite
habitat for bats.

This tree appears to date back to 1856 judging by the nearby gravestone!

I did not add the last line, but I could well have done so.

How I got Here...
I was walking down to make a coffee in Saltaire at Massarella's Art Gallery where my friend at a shop. I was mooching about there... My good friend Ellen used to a medical rep. She then said i dont want to worry you but I have called 999 for a ambulance... She then said look at the mirror in bathroom.... then.. I woke in hospital...
Then 5 months later... I have become Disabled.. Stroke, I lost ... job, flat, not mention my car... now at last I look much better...
So much for dreams... I ran with that for about 5 years, every day taking a photograph to put on site.
