As I cycled past this tree I noticed it had kept its leaves. I thought it very unusual but then actually very sensible, giving itself a head start on others.
The words that follow then came into my head and I rode the few feet back to take a photograph.
Hold on to your leaves when they wither,
There will always be a spring after a winter.
Comforting words of hope when things have always been beyond your control.
