Shades of Green


Yesterday's view from Coombe Abbey Hotel looking towards
Coombe Country Park.


I'll have to get out my flower and tree books to
identify these additions of yellow and purple color here.


Happy Monday.
The pressure is on for me to do a few jobs 
around the house so I'll be taking a little break.

Stay well!  Back soon :)

Is the tree Laburnam or something like that? I know it in the back of my mind as I saw the trees when I lived in the UK..It begins with an 'L' for sure.That aside,what beautiful shots!

Jane has the tree right,the flowers look like they might be a type of Allium. Love all those greens, don't work too hard on your break!

The purple flowers seem to be the Agapanthus

Gorgeous!

Gorgeous photos! I agree the tree is Laburnum and the tall purple flowers Alliums. The lawn, flower beds and topiary are so neat.

I think they're right about the purple flowers...it's any body's guess what the tree is...but they're both beautiful!!!

Beautiful moments that brings to memory this:

What a lovely place. It is remarkable how many shades of green exist in the top photo! The scope of that particular image is really amazing. Hope you are enjoying your break and getting a lot done!
