For your enjoyment

Glencormac Yew, Co. Wicklow, Ireland
The Glencormac Yew, near Kilmacanogue, Co. Wicklow, Ireland, is the oldest yew I have personally seen. Core samples have established that it sprouted right around the time of Christ's birth. It was well over a millennium-and-a-half in age when a yew allée was planted with this tree as an anchor at one end.

That's my daughter and me beside it in this 2002 picture taken on my basic film camera. I admit I was a bit surprised that my little scanner reproduced it as well as it did. Hope you enjoy it!
