More of the Same, but Different

I don’t think I’ve ever come across such an interesting tree before!

As it appears to be native to swampy areas of N.America, I wonder how it came to be here in Sussex at the Ifield Mill Pond and Bewbush Water Gardens?  I wonder if, like the Tilgate Lake and Park, the place was originally part of a private estate? That would account for the trees being introduced here as a specimen no doubt…. I will have to do a spot of historical research I think.  It’s brilliant that I can look stuff up on the internet!!

I took pics of other things that caught my eye at the Pond too so I will make that my follow on post.  au revoir,  Eileen
