Sitting in my carer’s car in the library car park, waiting for her to get the wheelchair out, I noticed that this tree seemed stripped of bark very high up (I’m not sure if you can see this, right in the middle of my photo?). My first thought was that there must be very tall deer around, and then I laughed at my silly imagination as I decided that it would make more sense if there were an escaped giraffe nearby. Perhaps he or she had stopped for a snack on the way to borrow a few books? The Long Neck to Freedom, maybe? Or something by Giraffery Archer?
