Anglesey Abbey (phone photos)

so now i have found it
the magic forest,
and with the winter sun shining it was stunning,

the lady near to me told her little grandson they were elephant trees ?

hello Carol,
no they weren't silver birch,
their bark was white very clean looking and not peeling at all.
i have never seen anything like them,

they actually looked like they had been white washed.
i was hoping
maybe some one can tell us

How lovely, and they intrigued me, so I went googling and found this:-
"Here is a tree with few attributes. It does not have attractive spring flowers, does not attract hummingbirds or butterflies, has no ornamental fruits, and though it has nice fall foliage, it certainly doesn't match Maples or Ashes. And it has a very narrow area of adaptability, suited only to cool summer/cold winter regions. And yet, this is one of the most beautiful trees in existence. It is the Snow Queen birch tree, or Betula utilis var. jacquemontii 'Snow Queen', also known as Himalayan Birch and has been a favorite of the Chelsea Flower Show for the last few years, and with good reason. In spring, summer, fall, and winter its ethereal beauty casts a spell over the garden. The whiteness of the bark is absolutely gleaming. And that is only after two years when the ordinary brown color of the trunk and branches peels back, revealing the brilliant, bright-white underbark. This is perhaps the most attractive bark of any tree."

thank you Pamela
how interesting this is,

we were walking along the (winter walk)it was planted with amazing bark on shrubs and trees,
and snowdrops celandines and crocus,
the path eventually lead to the river and the old white mill,
still grinding corn today,
that you could buy.

the little girl behind me had been moaning about being bord when
round the corner was this sparkling white spinney,

she suddenly became very animated and said
NOW!! this IS VERY interesting i must say,

it was so funny.


not sure if i have the right bord or bark,
funny words these two with double meanings
