I recently learned that the soil in Wales is what makes the trees take on their craggy, gnarly shape. Which presumably means that the same acorn planted in Wales will look different to how it would if it were planted in England, or Scotland or the US or wherever you’re reading this from. This week … Continue reading Where are you planting your roots?
