I’ve often wondered about this tree that I’ve passed every time I’ve walked around the local lake. I obviously haven’t caught it at its most spectacular up until now! When I got back home I took the time to search on line for its name but of course, it wasn’t showing up in any British tree lists, so I widened my search and it turned out to be a conifer.
What threw me was that I didn’t class it as a conifer because I’d mistakenly thought all conifers were evergreen and this tree clearly wasn’t. Anyway – the clue was in my pics because I saw what sort of looked like clusters of tiny cones and then some larger spherical green ones hidden among the bright colourful foliage that I hadn’t noticed when I was taking the pics.
It’s a very large tree and I wonder how old it is …. maybe I will see if anyone knows on my local FB group.
Oops – maybe next time I’ll take a pic of the complete tree!!
bye for now, Eileen
Another reason I love autumn is for the conkers …. but I don’t seem to have any in my immediate surroundings, nor have I seen any at The Pond, so I got my son to have a scout around further afield for me and he brought me these.
I thought I would try some low-key shots of them ….
I arranged some on my black glass-topped desk. I think the reflections have added a sort of abstract look to the image. I like the contrast of textures ….
I think I may try out some more ideas with them today though ….. bye for now, Eileen
Either side of the path leading to, and going around the lake [Ifield Pond] there’s a mixture of trees and hedgerows and in autumn it’s the bright little things among the bare branches that catch the eye – the variety of God’s creation is amazing and I’m always thanking Him for my hobby and these treasures and pleasures ….
More tomorrow I hope ….. my thanks for viewing and if you feel inclined please leave a comment, take care my friends, Eileen
I have the utmost confidence in saying that everybody loves Autumn [ I think !! Lol]. I went over to the Pond especially to seek out leaves that have changed to their autumn glory.
There were quite a few that had got caught up among other trees and shrubs on their way to the ground, and some were still attached to their parent tree, but without exception , they were all yellow! These pics are all in situ as found ….
I’m getting a bit like Busses – you don’t get any posts come along for a while and then you get several at once …. more from my autumn walk very soon, take care all, Eileen
