Tree Series #27

“Yet still the unresting castles thresh
In full-grown thickness every May.
Last year is dead they seem to say,
Begin afresh, afresh, afresh!”
~Larkin.

Pennies from Heaven

When the trees get dressed in spring it is as though they have decided to go to a party! Beautiful copper leaves translucent in the sunshine. Possibly a Copper Beech tree. I’m afraid my tree ID knowledge is pretty ropey.

I have lived in the UK for most of my life, but when young I definitely had wanderlust and even ended up living in South Africa for several years which was a wonderful experience. I now look forward to a long and leisurely retirement doing what I like most - gardening, photography, walking and travelling.

  1. Looks like Autumn colour in the Header. I love standing under a big copper beech and looking through at the sunlight. That post of Tish’s on the leaves was exquisite. Wishing you another happy, sunny day! 🙂 🙂

        1. It will be busy in the south during the school holidays. Tell me, do you get paid for house-sitting or is it based on free accommodation for looking after the pets? In which case I suppose you have to fund your own travel to each place.

  2. The second time I went to England I had just finished reading Maeve Binchy’s “The Copper Beech” and I was so excited when I saw one in the grounds of Jane Austen’s home at Chawton. Beautiful photo, Jude.
