Lee's tree with a PS from Regina

Nan Holmes, a frequent correspondent of this website, comments on Lee Stinchcombe's painting of the old mulberry tree , posted here yesterday. Thanks, Nan, from all of us.

"The tree is symbolic, of course, of the losses each of us have. Your connection, and indeed that of all the CP regulars, is profound to this park and its residents: flora; fauna; mammalian; raptor. In the midst of this city you all have an almost rural connection with this piece of land."

PS. Regina sends in an addendum this morning:
 We did a ring count and the tree was about 80-85 years old, which coincides  with our
records of when it was planted
