DAY 32 (7 MAY) – Lime trees? (Tilia) (River Wey, Guildford)
Found this striking avenue of tall trees on the banks of the River Wey at Guildford. I’ve spent ages trying to identify them and decided they might be lime trees, though their leaves weren’t asymmetrical like most limes.
But I read that limes often subdivide into many sections, as above. And the bark looks right. I love the pouty face on the trunk and the Squirrel Nutkin house where the eye is.
If they’re not limes, please say…
