This is very nice Elisabeth. It really gives scale to the lovely trees.
Lisl: Thank you, Frank. I thought it unusual to see trees this size so close, and yet they feel comfortable
Love those giant tree trunks! What type of tree is that? Do you know how old they are?
Lisl: I believe they are beeches, Elizabeth, and must be a couple of hundred years old. The park was opened in 1830, and they may have been part of the first planting.
Superbes arbres probablement plusieurs fois centenaires.
Lisl: At least 200 years' old, Martine
Ces grands arbres sont magnifiques !
Quel bonheur de les admirer, comme ce monsieur le fait avec ses deux chiens.
Lisl: Yes - it looks as if he is communing with them
This man has two dogs, I have three but this picture reminds me that every day I have to take mine out for walks twice. No leash for them, I let them run around as they please.
Beautiful park
Lisl: Your dogs must be so happy out with you, free twice a day, Marie. Yes - this is a lovely park in the heart of Bath

What a wonderful park this is, Lisl. Those giant trees are just amazing and like you said, strange that the trees are so close to each other. The person gives scale to this picture. Love the light here too.
Lisl: Thank you, Astrid. We will probably have time to go there in July, if you would like to - the Park is in Bath

Sheltering from the blistering heat of an English summer?
Lisl: I notice to that he is well wrapped up and the trees are in summer plumage!
And in the heart of Bath! I can just imagine how many dogs must sniff around in that very spot, Lisl. How wonderful. smile
Lisl: You must go there when you come - there is still so much of Bath for you to see

Wow! A wise-looking copse.
Lisl: Yes - perhaps the trees commune after hours
Impressionnant ce vécu pour ces arbres ....
Lisl: They are certainly fine trees

What magnificent trees. I bet the one in the distance with the near horizontal branch close to the ground gets plenty of use with people sitting or walking along the branch.
Lisl: I am sure you are right, Alan
Their roots must be intertwined.
Lisl: They look remarkably healthy for being in such close proximity

Un est attaché, pas l'autre
Lisl: I think they are very companionable

I spent most of the holidays in this park when I was at Junior school Lisl. That and the local bomb sites.
Lisl: I can imagine you did, Chad. I remember bomb sites in Bath, too, especially the bombed Churches

Those trees are are humongous. Tree huggers would find it difficult to get their arms around them. ;-)
Lisl: They could perhaps manage a partial embrace, Andy

With a coat like that in summer, he could be a flasher. Be wary grin

Jokes aside - the whole ensemble is a great picture.
Lisl: Thanks, Louis. I have never come across a dog-walker flasher yet!
They are magnificent trees standing so strong and sturdy, the dog on the right looks as if it is having a scratch against the trunk smile
Lisl: Perhaps a favourite scratching tree, Brian

Devi smile
Lisl: They call out to be enjoyed, Devi, thank you
WHat a lovely scene Friendship
Lisl: Thank you, ruthie

Lisl: Probably as old as the Park, Peter
Beautiful mature trees.......this is very nice Lis smile

Communing with nature smile
