Yesterday, first walk in the Beechwoods since early spring. Almost dog and people free. Wrens and blackbirds in summer song. I had forgotten how dense the canopy can be in some places. Questions. Are the woods at their most beautiful in spring, summer, autumn or winter? In hangers like this, do beeches put all their energies into height rather than girth?
Thanks to my second set of eyes for looking up and seeing this picture.
