The latest in my Hidden Worlds series is a Yew Tree cross-section. Being the curious person that I am, I had to do a little research on the Yew to see what it was all about. Turns out there is a lot of mythology surrounding this long-lived tree and there is actually a group called the Ancient Yew Group based in England. Its often found in churchyards in England and Wales, it was used to make longbows from the 13th to 16th century and the tree is quite poisonous! Who knew the Yew has such a colorful and interesting history.
