The Hallgarth Apple Tree

Nancy Urwin, a resident at Hallgarth Care Home in Durham, mentioned on a recent outing how a single tree goes through so many changes, and yet they always begin again each year, stronger than year before. Like life.

She talked of an apple tree in her garden and how she watched the seasons change from Spring, bringing new buds and blossom, to Summer, bringing fuller leaves and apples, to Autumn bringing a collection of burning colour leaves to Winter with only frost and snow on the branches.

Nancy wanted to create her very own apple tree for her room at Hallgarth, so set to work creating a tree that reflected all Four Seasons.

It now hangs pride of place in her bedroom.
