Soothing avenue

DAY 126 (9 AUGUST) – Small-leaf lime (Tilia cordata) (Farnham Park)

I’ve always loved this avenue of limes in Farnham Park. It spans the whole width of the park and it’s rare not to see a labradoodle or two being given a work-out along its length.

This is the national tree of the Czech Republic and Slovakia. The flowers that precede these fruits make a herbal tea that’s known to calm the nerves and treat anxiety. Just looking at the trees is enough to soothe me.
