Carmi's Challenge this week is GREYISH
On a grey and overcast day, the lake in the park looks grey. As do the reflections, but a breeze makes for an interesting pattern. In grey.
The roots of the old Beech tree look rather majestic when the rain gives them a sheen. Unhappily they are now dead roots, as the tree was cut down to about 15 ft. high two or three years ago. No one really knows why the park authorities did that! On other trees that have been similarly cut, a chain saw artist has carved animals and birds on the tops, but this beech tree has been left in its unnatural state!
I suppose it will rot now - badgers already seem to be stripping the bark the other side, and then Health and Safety will come and cut it down. Which would have been better in the first place!
Rant over - enjoy the photos!
