Another well chosen quote, and that tree is the ideal spot for a picnic.

Clever man that!

I'm hoping that once the schools break up for the summer holidays that the kids, grandchildren and I will be able to picnic here...perhaps by then the weather will be better!

i had to share Joyce Kilmer's lines with you,

"I think I shall never see, a poem as lovely as a tree" :)

I'm fairly certain it's an oak Dot; I must admit I'm not very good with tree identification but the form and leaf of this certainly say "oak" to me.

Tenderness contains an element of sadness. It is not the sadness of feeling sorry for yourself or feeling deprived, but it is a natural situation of fullness. You feel so full and rich, as if you were about to shed tears. Your eyes are full of tears, and the moment you blink, the tears will spill out of your eyes and roll down your cheeks. In order to be a good warrior, one has to feel this sad and tender heart. Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche
