arethinn: triskele engraved on green stone-textured background (pagan (newgrange spirals))
"Hacked by vandals shortly before Yule and left for dead, the Glastonbury Holy Thorn unfurled two wee leaves for Ostara."

Also, I did not know this: "Each time it looked sickly, cuttings would be taken and new sprouts started. The tree that was vandalized was not the original 2,000-year-old one, but a cutting—or clone, if you prefer—of it." My first thought was of the White Tree of Gondor, which is perpetuated down a single line from its extremely rare fruits. Wonder if Tolkien got the idea from the Thorn.

Imitate the magnificent trees
That speak no word of their rapture, but only
Breathe largely the luminous breeze.
