Jimi sat on a bench at Haigh
And listened to what his soul did say,
Purple haze all in my brain
Lately things don't seem the same
Actin' funny but I don't know why
Excuse me while I kiss the sky....

Stunning photo, Ron. Well done.

Does anyone know what kind of trees those are?

Comment by: Mick on 5th June 2018 at 12:17

Fred its hard to tell with all that added colour Ron as put in, even the tarmac gone pink.

Comment by: Anne on 5th June 2018 at 12:52

The "trees" look to be pruned and trained rhododendron bushes.

Comment by: Helen of Troy on 5th June 2018 at 13:19

They are rhododendrons Fred, they have been pruned to look like trees/bushes.

We have a NT park here in Sheringham with every rhododendrons you might like to see...but none as vivid as that colour !

Comment by: Maureen on 5th June 2018 at 14:37

I wish mine were that colour.

Comment by: DTease on 5th June 2018 at 15:26

Didn't they tell us that they had to get rid of all the rhododendrons?

Comment by: Ron D on 5th June 2018 at 16:36

Mick,There was I thinking the red cast was from the flowers.How wrong. can you get

Comment by: Fred Mason on 5th June 2018 at 18:31

Thanks all. I did think they were Rhododendrons but not with all those flowers. Just beautiful. A great shot indeed.
