Quote of the day:
“… then my heart with pleasure fills,
And dances with the daffodils.
– William Wordsworth
Forage in March for:
Cleavers, Dandelion flowers and leaves, Gorse flowers, Ground Elder , Hop shoots, Alexanders, Primroses, Wild Plum blossom, Sweet Violets
They really are!
And who doesn’t like kicking their way through leaves!
and fortunately it has been dry, so they are all crispy.
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.
France is the place to go for allees, but they are having problems with disease too. 😦
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.
