CYPRESS TREES

Open
 parkland in Yarra Bend Park in Kew. This
 site
 has
 a
 strong
 European
 character
 with
large
 cypress
 and
 elm 
trees. An old stone
 wall
 (being
 the 
remainder
 of
 some
 heritage
buildings) also contributes to this. 
The 
sports 
oval 
provides
 a 
‘village 
green’
 atmosphere.

These large cypress trees are exotic in Australia and represent deliberate plantings by the colonists. The open position, great age and lack of competing species have ensured development to an impressive size.

This post is part of the Our World Tuesday meme,
and also part of the Trees & Bushes meme.
