Winter Walk Posted on November 23, 2013 by hilarycustancegreen We took a friend to Anglesea Abbey and the gods were kind with the weather. Anglesea Abbey, Winter Walk When we reached home our own copper beech was showing off its autumn glory too. Fagus sylvatica rohanii Share this:TwitterFacebookLike this:Like Loading... Related
A beautiful rendition of fall. Enjoy, winter can’t be too far off in the future. Peggy grew up with a Copper beach in her yard and still talks about it. –Curt
It’s the first tree I remember. My father attached a swing from the branch of a giant spreading copper beech in the garden. We can only fit a fastigiate one in our garden now, but it is a happy reminder.
Peggy smiled at the mention of the swing.
Lovely walk and still plenty of green about. Did I spot holly in the second photo? Here in Australia summer has re-treated and we are having both heaters on with Christmas just four weeks away. Then there are people that claim climate change is just an illusion.
Does your beech carry any nuts? I remember as a child eating them.
Yes, I’m sure there is holly there. We have masses in our garden too. Our beech is still young, but there were a few nuts on it last year. I’d forgotten one could eat them.
Strange and beautiful that Nature chose one bush here and one tree there to stand out.
Lucky for us, though, that we can interact with nature to create our own ideas of beauty.
