As a gardener I have always favoured flowers and shrubs over trees but since I’ve been photographing Nature over the past year I have seen some beautiful trees and my interest and love of them – which I had as a child – has been re-ignited. I think I have under-appreciated them for most of my adult life.
One of my very favourites, as a result of this new-kindled interest, is the Beech. I love its form, its graceful beauty, and its warm colours during the cold Seasons. I hope to feature more trees generally in my blog this year.
(I apologise to subscribers who may have received a post notification of the same image and text a few minutes ago. For some reason it was posted as 28 Dec instead of today. Weird!).
