Left at the Benmore cafe…


No, not lost coat or a forgotten umbrella but a lovely, lovely poem written by Alex Storm Hague, from Lochwinnoch, Renfrewshire.

Many thanks to Alex for taking the time to help us celebrate 150th anniversary of the planting of the Redwood Avenue. Alex didn’t give the poem a title so, forgive me taking liberties, but I’d like to call it Storm Trees, in honour of Alex’s fabulous name.


Storm Trees by Alex Storm Hague, Lochwinnoch, Renfrewshire
Oh tree so tall
Oh tree so wide
How still you stand
The tests of time
