I was surprised to see swamp cypress here. Is it native? We call it bald cypress, and it is a native — one of our most pleasingly colored trees in the fall. There are some on the property where I live.
Swamp Cypress has been in the UK since the 17th century apparently, thanks to Mr Tradescant. Mostly found in Botanical gardens and stately homes though. It so lovely at this time of year, I for one am glad to see it here.
Glorious. How we are supposed to keep our eyes on the ground with these overhead is beyond me.
Ha, you are so right. I know that it is easy to fall down rabbit-holes while admiring these beauties!
Autumn is such a gorgeous time of year – great shots!
Yes it is … thanks!
Best time of year!
Lovely autumn colours.
