Travel Theme: Trees

Spring has sprung and the trees around Ludlow are wearing their bright new clothes…


some are green

or yellow



or a shade of pink


some are just plain show-offs


others are insanely frothy


I love photographing trees.

I have lived in the UK for most of my life, but when young I definitely had wanderlust and even ended up living in South Africa for several years which was a wonderful experience. I now look forward to a long and leisurely retirement doing what I like most - gardening, photography, walking and travelling.

  1. I’m so picturing the way these used to be, with horse carriages and people on foot back in the day 🙂 beautiful shots!

    1. Well it’s mostly 4WD and landrovers around here Andy, with a lot of tractors in the countryside! It is a lovely town to walk around still.

    1. I am guessing that both the white and pink are flowering cherries, they are enormous! I was amazed at the sheer number of flowers on the pink one!

  2. I love trees. My mother always likes to remind me that as a child I was always up the top of the nearest tree. Don’t do so much tree climbing these days but I’d be sorely tempted to climb that flowering cherry tree. Wouldn’t it be a glorious spot to sit for a while?

  3. Glorious trees….they’re one of my favourite things to photograph too.

    1. They are just so giving! Bold, bare structures through the winter when you can see through them to the landscape beyond, bright new myriads of greens in spring, fully clothed providing shade in summer, then the wonderful autumnal colours! The countryside would be very drab without trees, and that’s not to mention what they do for the planet!

      1. Wow, Jude….that’s some very scenic writing you just did in that comment! Am almost more impressed with that than the pix of the trees themselves! 🙂

    1. Still a few magnolias about too, but I am all magnoliaed (sp?) out after Cornwall. I will write a post about them though.

  4. Jude it is like an explosion of color! With all of the blooms it’s like a smorgasbord of nature. I can see why you like taking photos of trees!

    1. I left a lot out Sue! It was so good to see colour in the landscape again. And that blossom was stunning. I spotted a lilac about to bloom too so I will be back down that street in a week or two 🙂
