I found this tree on Hampstead Heath on Sunday. I can't believe the tentacles of the American presidential election have reached into my forest sanctuary, but here's the evidence. I'm not sure whether it was painted when Bernie was still a viable candidate, or more recently as a protest against Hillary.
In any case, it's probably not the best use of a tree. Even Bernie would agree to that, I feel certain.

I also walked to work listening to the ninth episode of the first season of the "Serial" podcast. I'm hooked!
