End of winter

Early March and just before new life bursts forth a few remnants of last year still linger

Yes, you are right - your picture evoke some Mediterranean flair but I cannot explain why - maybe, the gentle blue sky, the voluptiousness of leaves ...- a very fine composition, almost a still-life!
Bill Phillips: Thanks Philine. This was taken on about the first nice day this spring!
I have a tree like that in the garden, but no clue on its name??
Bill Phillips: It is an ash according to Chad
We've got Ash trees in fields not a hundred yards from our house ..I'm sick to death of the Ash keys that seed themselves in my garden by the thousand and block up the gutters ... grrrr
Bill Phillips: Miserable sod

Yes Bill, the old Ash trees seem reluctant to let go.
Bill Phillips: Not in Trimbo's area apparently

This is a sort of minor miracle really isn't it
Bill Phillips: A bit like you then?

Yes I'm still lingering on...


... that's the ash talking ;o)
Bill Phillips: Hahahaha....
That is the miracle of nature and soon it will be transformed into a lush green tree.
Bill Phillips: Indeed it will Laurette

Wintering homes for spiders..
Bill Phillips: It may well be i suppose
What happens to these remnants when new life bursts forth, Bill; do they drop off?
Bill Phillips: I imagine so Beverly

I like the detail
Bill Phillips: Thank you kindly vintage
These look a little bit sad Bill, perhaps new ones will grow soon. Perhaps this is in a local park?
Bill Phillips: It is in a local park Stanley, about 1/4 mile from where i live
The house opposite us had two palm trees that were there when we moved in in 1989. Sadly they ended up looking like this after all the severe weather in November and December and now they have had to be cut down.
Bill Phillips: A lot of "hardy" plants have not survived the winter, so anything a bit delicate was in real trouble! This tree will no doubt be fine
Yup - I can see the same things out of my study window!
Bill Phillips: Well you beter take a picture of them Tom smile

The leaves have done well to stay on until now. I've no idea what it is but others seem to think it's an ash.
Bill Phillips: So they say and I am prepared to believe them Alan
Most effective the blue sky helps a lot
Bill Phillips: I think it does Martin
Yes indeed, some trees seem reluctant to let go, nice shot
Bill Phillips: Thanks John. It is funny how bits linger

I never realised these were ash trees. We have loads of ash around here - always find them an untidy tree!
Bill Phillips: Nor did I. I like the idea of an untidy tree though smile
