Yesterday evening the light in our garden was too good to miss, as the sun dropped and shone through the foliage of the old oak across the road. From the kitchen window, I'dspotted its glow through the fresh, new, rosy growth on our beech hedge...

...but unlike the glorious summer days of a week ago, a stiff breeze has brought us Torgny's Scandinavian cool air for days, demanding cold waiting for a lull, and sometimes higher ISO from mytiny sensor in the dimming light,

...but my discomfort was mild, compared to that of our windblown foxgloves and few surviving sprigs of chard (on the right), so far surviving both the wind and the rabbits...

Ah,fascinating time of the day especially for the one who has a garden like yours:-) No sensor cando it justice but the one in the back of our minds! Is that a walnut tree at the background? Reminded me my granfather's garden in Su┼čehri (in the norteast of Anatolia) whichplayed an important role in my imagination leading me many an explorationand enjoyment of tranquility alone...

No, I'm afraid not. We have at least 9 different trees in our garden (I just went out and inspected the leaves) but I'll have to study the book to tell you all their names and remind myself which are which. The only ones that produce edible things are apple, pear and damson. There are also beech, sycamore, several assorted firs, and Leylandii (one down, one waiting on death row). There's also a small weeping willow, and hazels in the hedge (but they "do not contain nuts").

This is a small garden, and the excessive shade means the vegetable patch is not as productive as the Head Gardener would like. But she loves the trees, which have this habit of growing.

Hey, what else can oneask for ??:-)I actually find decorative trees and plants even more productive in terms of 'beauty' than the edible fruit bearing ones, which is my priority! Btw, looking at the tree bark and branches carefully again, you're right!

Alan,

Strong winds and low sun positions (to me in that order) make such pictures possible. Thanks
