Little and Large

It's always a welcome sight to see a new tree growing in the hedges which seem to be cut so low these days:


It is growing in a line of well established Poplar trees:


Though it has a long way to go before it can compete with them for height:



  1. really cute. grow, baby, grow!

  2. I hardly notice the hedges in Lincolnshire these days. come a hot dry spell and they will wish they had left them in. I can see the soil drifting like snow.

  3. I just love Poplar trees John and they are so rarely seen up here. I hope it grows tall and strong. We often try growing trees for our plantation on the farm - sometimes pines from seed. So far we have reared a dozen or so to plant pot size - now we hope they survive their first winter.

  4. That part of Lincs doesn't seem over full of anything taller than about 4 feet high!

  5. Poplars are Lincolnshire windbreaks. When I was a lad in Spalding there were far more hedges than there are now.

  6. Lovely to see the Lombardy Poplars John, a typical fenland sight around here.


Thank you for visiting. Hope you enjoyed the pictures. Any comment, or correction to any information or identification I get wrong, is most welcome. John
