In this once a week series, visitors inform us regarding their preferred trees. Today: a Derbyshire oak that makes passersby smile

Darley Park lies just north of Derby city centre, sloping down to the River Derwent. Trees line the river, as well as are populated around the park– beech, oak as well as chestnut predominate. It’s typically active with pet dog walkers, joggers and family members, yet it allows enough to supply some peace as well as escape from the city.

I have actually been walking my canines here for more than two decades, and have to have passed this particular oak hundreds of times without really discovering it. Someday, I took a look at it as well as saw this face recalling at me. Maybe the light was different on this day or I was a lot more in harmony with seeing it. Currently I offer it (him/her?) a nod when I pass, as well as I’ve seen others doing the exact same. There are lots of even more beautiful trees in the park, yet I’m particularly keen on this set– it makes me smile.
