London Plane trees in Hyde Park..



Firstly, I apologize to all who took the time to leave a comment on my last three posts, you know how much I love your feedback which made it all the more horrible that I deleted them while trying to get rid of spam! Ticked the wrong box didn't I, thankfully only the first 100 comments :) je suis désolé! Onwards.. passing Hyde Park yesterday the lure of the London Plane trees in spring was too strong to resist.. planted between 1897/1899 in avenues around the lakes they are fabulous in all seasons, especially providing much needed shade in the heat of summer, the park is looking especially lush after the rains. Hope you're having a good weekend, take care.. p.s. I have a 'proposal' for you tomorrow.. intrigued?

  3. So lush and green...paradise!

    I have a spammer problem too. If only there were an online "pest control" to help us get rid of these pesky varmints!

  5. My comments are set to hold comments on post older than 2 or three days and I catch and mark as 'spam' on any objectionables as they come in on the recent posts. I also had to forbid anonymous comments. . . . . . Can't WAIT to see what you will present tomorrow, G!

  10. Once again, amazingly lush spring growth at precisely the same time as our trees are slowly drifting into autumn.

  11. I am too lazy to check, but I often wonder if there is another kind of plane tree other than the London one. Is there another type of flag iris other than Dutch Flag Iris. They and elms are great street trees.

  12. Oh yes, lovely park and so green, for now. I am intrigued by the proposal. Does it involve sending you money?

  13. Beautiful shots! Ooops on the computer problems!

  14. Yes, I agree, Hyde Park is looking amazing! We're indebted to the planners who make sure Perth was a park-green city (as much as it can be considering the dry climate) with Kings Park and Hyde Park, not mention the many others... lovely post.

    1. I wrote 2 Haikus. To see their relevance, one needs to read my blog too!

      1. Spring

      Newness of things:
      the greenness – the blueness – the
      colours of Spring.

      2. Swans

      Like ballerinas,
      swans float above their
      watery stage.

  19. London, Hyde Park, for a moment I thought you had come over to Europe. The English have put their marks on Australia.
