THE LABURNUM TREE




More tree talk.
Many gardens at this time feature the ‘golden rain’ of the laburnum tree, which around here has only just ended it shower of colour.
It is actually a native of area that stretches from France to the Balkans. The tree’s wood has been a favourite with cabinetmakers and those creating musical instruments: recorders and the bagpipes. 

As I made this drawing of the laburnum tree in our garden it was alive with the huge sound of bees busy about their business.
