  1. And who doesn’t like kicking their way through leaves!

  2. Eliza Waters says:

    These are marvelous vistas. We don’t have enough allees here in the US. We used to have American elms that lined streets, but sadly, they are all gone now.

  3. Beautifully photographed and an interesting subject. Is it true that the French historic roadside avenues are being felled to reduce traffic accidents?

    • Sadly it seems so and that is without adding in the terrible losses from the fungal disease sweeping through the plane trees which grace the canals. France won’t feel the same without them! I’ve collected various pictures of wonderful avenues over time and my favourites are the Dark Hedges, Co. Antrim and the spanish moss covered oaks in Tomotley Plantation, South Carolina.
