Taken 2003, Rosie in the Nursery
Friends Dorothy and Guenter chose oak G7 to commemorate a member of their family who had passed away. They come down every year to lay a bunch of flowers and take a photo. The oak has grown somewhat, and has filled out.

Father of G7 is the Major Oak from Sherwood Forest, about 1,000 years old. G7 acorn was collected in 2000 AD.
