Tree-scapes.



A few trees that caught my eye whilst out walking with Bok yesterday.











No words necessary.

    2. 'Limited words'; is that better?

    3. A thousand words is worth a picture.

  2. A walk filled with beauty. In the second one down it looks as though there is an ancient, grinning, but toothless, person peering out from between the folds of curtains. I would love that stump to be in our stumpery.

    1. They are all in a small Chestnut wood that I used to own. Mostly very old trees, but still producing plenty of fruit.

  3. Beautiful!
    Are those mushrooms on the ground, in the last picture of the tree with ivy?

    1. No, they're the old empty chestnut husks from last year; but I had to look twice!

    1. PS just read your post on quinces which was featured underneath. Gave me some ideas. Someone is sure to give us a bag of the damn things very soon.

    2. Otherwise I'll send over a container load; ours is just about to start flowering.

  5. The first picture is fascinating... what sort of vine was climbing the trunk... it looks as though you'd stepped from yours into some tropical rain forest.

    However my favourite has got yo be picture two... the Sweet Chestnut "trogne"... or tetard.... both are French for pollard... that must be close on 200 years old to develop a bole like that!!
    And Elaine's description of it, above, is nice, too... but I see a Trogne with an Afro that knows that it is an important part of the landscape...
    but, like all Ents... "he do talk slow"! And occasionally goes for a walk... but he's back before you next pass....

    1. I think it must be Ivy in picture one. I can't think what else it would be.

      Picture two is a fine old tree. I always give her a little pat when I go past; I used to be her master.

  6. I have been looking at a tree like the first one recently although it has been in the same place all my life. I think it is since seeing Paul Nash exhibition the other week. He photographed a lot of trees like that one in the name of art. My favourite here.

    1. I'm tempted to remove that mass of twisted wood in Pic 1. I fear that otherwise it will fall and be burned.

    1. I'm often amazed by the beauty that surrounds me; surrounds all of us!

  8. Love these photos Cro. Beauty of nature, very nice.

  9. It's balm for my currently grey-brown world. The northern U.S.A. is ugly this time of year without snow on the ground. No blossoms yet, no leaves, no green grass. I especially loved the fruit tree blossoms you shared a few days ago.

    1. Winter goes on for far too long; can't Trump do something about it?

    2. Hmpf... I can just imagine it... He would no doubt come up with a "brilliant" idea of spray painting the ground with green paint, which he would import from China (all the while denying it was from China). And with his luck the paint would probably contain copious amounts of lead which would get washed by the rain into our city drains and poison our water supply. How's that for a scenario?! :)
