Progression of Spring

Below are a series of photos of the avenue of Horse Chestnuts in Tooting Bec Common.  You may remember Tooting Bec Common as the first part of my London Parks and Gardens series.  I will take more pictures as the year goes on, but I wanted to share what I had so far. Horse Chestnuts here in the UK have gone in decline as many of them have contracted Horse Chestnut Blight, which causes the leaves to brown very very early in the year (amongst other things). Many horse chestnuts have been removed because of this. It’s sad as the horse chestnut is a beautiful tree, with a beautiful spring flower and a bit of a stalwart of the British landscape. Recently they’ve been replacing the horse chestnuts with a different varieties, but I don’t think they are as nice. Any ways, onto the pictures….
