Photo-a-Day (Saturday, 20th November, 2021)
I always found something magical about the plantations as a child, especially the areas of coolness on a hot Summer's day in the places where the sun never penetrated the trees. There is a "time-stood-still" feeling about this photo.
Is this the way the tractor went
Before the oak was cut in thee ,
From behind who's shade the rum lads leapt
Upon the back and rode for free ?
Is this the road the carriages wound
Along the shining pristine lane ,
Over the bridges balustrades
In their cream and orange livery?
Yes I think you could be right ,
The couplings clang on every bend
And soon the hall will be in sight
If this was the way the tractor went .
Could just imagine Little Red Riding Hood with her basket and one of the logs turning into a wolf....
There was always plenty wolves about if I remember! (Not these days though)....
I wrote my name in 2p coins and nailed a clock to that tree just after it came down, but they soon got vandalized.
This pic must have been taken some while ago, here in Norfolk there are hardly any leaves on the trees now & it is November but its a nice PAD anyway.
Well it seems you were the one vandalising it Mick !
We still have lots of leaves on the trees as my daily sweep can testify to maybe Norfolk has no hills so they just blow away
People are fooled into thinking the whole of Norfolk is flat.....try riding a bike here in Nth Norfolk ! The flat bits are the fens & they are mainly Cambridegshire and beyond The Wash that said it can be very windy so leaves do get stripped of the trees before they are ready to fall.
