Not So Plane After All

Flodden Road, London, SE5

I’ve been enjoying London Plane trees today.

Earlier, on the South Bank, I was kicking about some enormous Plane leaves. They were bigger than the size of my head! And then, later on, I discovered this lovely specimen, standing taller than a three-story house.

I particularly love how nearly all of the leaves have fallen off this tree, except for the ones clinging on to the very edges.

It gives the impression that the gorgeous, shapely, dark, criss-crossing of the tree skeleton is sporting a rather sensible haircut, albeit one with an intriguing colour distribution…all browns and yellows on top, but with a big green patch down the side.
