Autumn colour 2003. As temperatures drop during the Autumn, many of the leaves will change colour and fall.

Winter 2003. A large portion of deadwood at the back of the tree became detached from the live wood; it was found that the tree had actually rooted into the soft pulpy deadwood and was forcing the two halves apart. I decided to remove the deadwood and plant the tree on a piece of stone.

A suitable piece of stone was found and carved to fitin the gap snugly. The tree and stone were then bonded together.
