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!”

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.
