Following on from yesterdays Bountiful Blossom post, I want to share with you some other beautiful trees that were nearby. Invermay Agricultural Research Centre, Dunedin, New Zealand. Photos taken Sun 26 Nov 2017.
This Horse Chestnut tree is looking beautiful with its lovely display of candle flowers. It also provides a nice pool of shade on a hot day, as does the oak tree further back. Spent flowers had shed their petals all over the grass below, scattered like pink confetti.

Looking up through the branches. This oak has lovely light-coloured bark.
Nearby tree with lovely delicate foliage. Not a tree we’re familiar with so I can’t tell you the name.
