The group of trees at Saltram...

On one of our recent trips away, we stopped at Saltram House (I did blog about it here) and one particular photo I took, which I posted onto my Facebook timeline, was of this tree (or group of trees) you see they're all joined up in a line...



Several people asked what kind of tree it was, I wasn't sure, although I thought the leaves looked like sycamore, but several suggestions were made which left me wondering.  So in order to put an end to speculation, I sent a message on Saltram via their facebook page.  They were really great and went to the trouble of replying and answering that it is indeed Sycamore.  Yay! at last I know for sure.

    1. Neither have I, it was so unusual yet nobody else around seemed to take any notice of them...it was a 'must photo' opportunity :-)

  3. Very interesting, I had to use Google Translate to know what kind of tree 'sycamore' is, but now I know... esdoorn in Dutch. :)
