Lovely example of a Renovator's Dream in the foreground, Brian.
Brian Walbey: I took a few shots of that but didn't go up close as I wasn't sure whether it was private land.
Whatever the reason - it's a lovely scene!
Brian Walbey: We really enjoyed our time looking out over this lovely scenery.

Brian Walbey: I've discovered today they were planted to celebrate the Queen's coronation.

C'est original de voir ces lettres au sol.
Brian Walbey: They were planted to celebrate the Queen's coronation.
Someone has written a stutter on the hillside.
Brian Walbey: They were planted to celebrate the Queen's coronation.
Never seen tree graffiti before, not sure I like it among the rolling lines of this beautiful scene.
Brian Walbey: They were planted to celebrate the Queen's coronation.
I wonder what the E and the R stand for.
Brian Walbey: They were planted to celebrate the Queen's coronation in 1953, meaning either Elizabeth Reigns or more likely Elizabeth Regina.

A nice idea to celebrate ER. It is a pity that the house has been delapidated.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Philine.
A patriotic scene Brian. I wonder if they will plant one for Charlie?
Brian Walbey: If they take the middle stroke trees out there is a Charlie one ready made.

They keep them shaped then
Brian Walbey: Theys eem to be looked after very well, but they were planted by the Duke of Devonshire at nearby Chatsworth so I guess the estate pays for the upkeep.

IOt probably seem like a good idea at the time. I wonder who has the job of looking after it now? I seen a potential holiday home; a lick of paint and it will be good to market smile
