Trees that scratch back

Having managed to get my scanner to cooperate, here's a sketch I did during yesterdays walk. The photo of the fern (see previous post) was taken higher up the hill among the pine trees, but on one side of the wood, the pines end and the ground slopes down onto a small patch of wasteland. Here the trees twist and bend over brambles, old crumbling brickwork and the odd rusty beer can. There are many different species of tree, and they all seem to give as good as they get when you try to push your way through the tangle. It's a great place to find some real characters. :-)
