I love this. It mirrors exactly the comment you left on bloomingwriter earlier, dear Lucy; that interest and beauty can be found in the most derelict of places. Even more, I love that you weed around dandelions. Four cheers, indeed. :-)

Amazing. Looks almost ghostly with all that white.

Perhaps if it rained conditioner? I'd like to see a picture of the same tree in a couple of months. I bet it looks very different.

It's good to find harmony in this, Jodi.

Hello Hermes.

I took more conventional photos of this branch too but they weren't anywhere near as interesting.

Hello James.

I'm really struck by the idea of raining conditioner!

As for seeing what this branch will look like later in the season - you probably will! I started monitoring these damaged trees in the autumn of 2008. You may be interested in the first post I wrote about them at

(The link highlights are a bit odd because I have changed the blog layout and colours since then and am unlikely to go back and change all the old colours which no longer fit the new look or show up as well as they should.)

I don't know much about the weather in Dorset, but I'm guessing a heavy snow storm or a very strong wind, or both broke that branch off. Nice capture.

Hello Scott.

No. This is not weather damage.

Unfortunately, this is the local council's contractors' idea of pruning.
