As I brought my vision down I saw the girth of the rain-tree. It could easily hide around 10 people. The tree stood alone, its siblings butchered by an axe long time back.  Those who appreciated its canopy had installed plaque in its honour mentioning that it was 300-year-old. Think, if its siblings had been around too.
