A morning of beautiful trees during our walk.

14 comments


Today was especially lovely quite cold with a blue sky..all varieties of geese and ducks were out making such a noise and the sudden skidding sounds of swans coming to an abrupt stop.

The first photo shows a beautiful shaped tree covered in delicate white blossom…could anyone say which it is please?

Second photo shows 2 of my favourite trees….a large Silver Birch behind which was a young Weeping Willow.

The next photo is a favourite of mine looking towards the church spire framed by the tree….probably one suitable to use for a water colour painting.

I can see why those trees really appealed to you as they are just magical to look at. I love the blossom on the first one, the shape of the second one and the position of the third one. All are lovely.

I agree that the last photo is lovely and will make a good lwater colour painting. Would you mind if I tried to paint it ?

I, too, enjoy your walks, Julia. You’ve had a very pleasant weekend weather wise for your refreshing walk about..
Your pics are very artistically captured, I can see why Marjorie wants to get her paintbrush out!
