I am Hardtwig. I can see cars and bikes zoom on the roads and people and animals slowly pass me. I live next to Meadowshoot and Greenroot. I am also a home to birds and insects who perch on my branches and underneath my bark, and at night sometimes owls come and rest by my leaves, and in autumn foxes hide between my roots, and in summer I can see swans and ducks paddle around and children paddle and build snowmen on the banks.
