~ a gardening and allotment notebook
I'm always fascinated by trees which don't seem to have any lower branches, they look like clouds perched on top of sticks. They're particularly interesting when they're bent to one side by the wind.
Anna what a beautiful wild display of echinacea and grasses
The trees almost look like Umbrella Pines, but they can't be, the other plants would struggle in a climate that the pines were adapted to.
This is a lovely photo. It reminds me of mountains. Adore the wave of Echinacea
Love those Scot Pines, and with the lovely flowers in the foreground, really beautiful.
Thanks for all your kind comments. I can see why umbrella pines came to mind Christina but assure you that the photo was taken on the Cheshire Plain. I think that as Noelle says that they are Scots pines but they caught my eye as much as the flowers did. We visited this garden primarily to attend a plant sale but will definitely make a return visit when it is quieter for a good look round.
You have captured this wonderful sight beautifully Anna!
I've never been to Abbeywood and as it's only in the next county to us I feel quite amazed that I've missed it. Thanks for bringing it to our attention Anna. That's a lovely photo and as you are planning to go back it must be well worth a visit.
A fab photograph and great planting combinations too :)
All your comments are much appreciated and treasured. I wil try to reply to everyone who leaves a comment, but it may take me a few days, especially when I start spending more time in the garden and at the lottie. I know that you will understand :) I am sure that I will also visit your blog if I have not already done so. If you have any specific questions I will either reply to them here or you can email me at : email@example.comNamasté- Anna.
