711 – Nature

I changed my route by only a few yards. I wanted to have a look at the trees near the Cockle ponds. They are out in the open. Apparently, trees that are exposed to the wind develop their roots a little bit differently, building stronger roots on the side from the direction of the prevailing wind to make it harder to blow them over.

I have to be honest and say that I couldn’t see that in these trees.

Also, it appears that trees tend to build their leaves on the side away from the prevailing wind. Now, I was about to say that I couldn’t see that either but then I looked at the picture and noticed that the tree in the top right looks as though the leaves at the top of the tree look as though they are trending toward the left. Perhaps I need to take another look at those trees.

I have to say that at the moment, I am not massively impressed with the book, which I am not going to name tag this stage. I did have a little difficulty in getting going with the book, and put it down for a while, I’ve come back to it to give it another chance, now I’m not going to give up on it yet. Isn’t it sad and a bit of an indictment that I am finding an academic book about Saxon Britain More exciting than a book about how nature works. Interesting.

I just want to write, but I prefer to stay away from controversial topics like politics. I am happy to confess that at the moment, I am writing for me. If you enjoy my writings, and I hope you do then that is all the better.
