“Old Order Changeth Yielding Place To New”
This year a new shoot has cropped up right next to where a dead twig fell off the tree last year.
“The old order changeth yielding place to new
And God fulfills himself in many ways
Lest one good custom should corrupt the world.”
(King Arthur to Sir Bedivere, “Idylls of the King”, Alfred Tennyson)
