Les Platanes


The platanes, plane trees, the beautiful trees that line the roads have been pruned back so that the local council employees can put up the Christmas lights. Though the pruning looks brutal the branches grow back beautifully to give welcome shade in summer.

They look like art installation like this. Can't wait to see them strewn with lights.

It does look a little brutal, but still I like the odd shapes after they have been pruned! And you are right about the shade! I love the bark of these trees too!

Brutal and kind of creepy.

A lovely shot. I read Lisa's comment and suppose, if you didn't know how they come back so easily, it could look brutal - as you mentioned. It didn't occur to me tho. I like those crazy shapes.
