“At St. Melangell’s shrine in North Wales, the circular Celtic churchyard is protected by yew trees said to be over 2000 years old. Although the interior of the trunks have collapsed, they still put forth new growth every year.”

  1. Almost like a little miracle! and probably because of their logevity they are associated with Eternal Life. Thank you for revealing God from another perspective.

  2. Totally mesmerized by this picture-thanks to the lighting, I remembered the Tree of Jesse, the shoot from the stump that grew into the Tree of Life-our Church,and this Yew, collapsing ,probably splitting too, has this shoot as a symbol of Hope for the future.
