#TreeSquare (11) …. A reminder of Spring

Rhododendron Spring

A Rhododendron Spring…..

A reminder of spring…..  at times it seems like yesterday, then again it does seem like a lifetime ago.  Today, July comes to an end and we enter August……  I wonder just what nature has in store for us as summer reaches its climax.

#TreeSquare (10) Over the Wall

Yorkshire-2010--_0180sm

A winter scene in Wharfedale, Yorkshire.  Despite the often inclement weather the wall is, like many others, known as a “Dry Stone Wall”.  Traditional field boundaries made from local stones, skilfully interlinked in there construction without the use of mortar or cement.  Dry Stone Walls are common in many regions across the UK.  The construction does differ from region to region, each has a distinctive style of its own. Variations there maybe but they all seem to have stood the test of time. Probably, these walls will out live the trees, trees that have most likely self-seeded,  finding sanctuary for their roots in the shelter of the wall.

#TreeSquare (8) Still more summer to come

Mist

There is still some way to go before autumn and its colours arrive.  So far this summer it has been hot, very hot and also dry.  That combination is tough for trees, their leaves suffering drought and harsh rays of the sun. It can also mean an early start to autumn.  I love autumn…. but not just yet please.

#TreeSquare (7) …. The Shepheard’s Bridge

The Shepheard’s Bridge on the side of Howden Moor, in the Upper Derwent Valley, Derbyshire.  A lone Silver Birch stands guard over the bridge that straddles one of the source tributaries of the River Derwent.
