I love the little environments you get around the base of the tree, in particular these dense little carpets of tiny white flowers that grow amongst the mosses and dandelion.
It's a harsh world down there, polluted, noisy, sprayed with dog urine and heaven knows what other foulnesses. But yet, there is life. One can almost imagine the minuturised David Bellamy of "Bellamy's Backyard Safari" tearing around down there, being chased by centipedes.
