Coombe Country Park
Here is an unusual sight. Autumn leaves and what I thought
was a Monterey Pine (tree on the right). I have since learned
that it is actually a Cedar of Lebanon tree.
There is a story.
First off, I think this tree might be over 200 years old.
The grounds of Coombe Country Park were designed by
Lancelot 'Capability' Brown. Although Brown liked native English trees
he also liked exotic trees and Cedar of Lebanon is
one of his most famous. You can see cedars planted in
many of his gardens across England.
Please note it isn't raining. These photos were taken
over a week ago. I am thinking that is the last time I saw blue sky :).
Have a super weekend. See you next week
in Coventry City Centre for a change!
