The new leaves are golden too

I am very taken with the colour and texture of young oak leaves in the sun just now.   Before they become green, they are golden yellow and blush red at the tips.

Now I consider this pair of golden trees, I am not sure they are oaks.  The growth pattern of that one on the left looks a little un-oak-like.  I will have to check next time I cross the bridge.

No question about this one though.  Could that shape be anything but an oak?

And here is a reminder that Rosie is not *always* awful and she does have a recall sometimes, because here she is, off lead and recalling.

It's just that she is very easily distracted, particularly if I spend too much time inspecting the click-and-beep-box rather than admiring the Rosie Roo and telling her what a good dog she is, or if I try to curtail a walk that she thinks is too short.  Our central problem there is that it is not really feasible to walk dogs for 4+ hours every sunny day.

God, it's so beautiful! Would you mind if I borrow the pictures of the trees? (Not to use somewhere, just to keep on my computer.)
I actually like all the pictures you've made of your village. Could you please remind me what this place is called? I'm sure I've seen the name somewhere in your posts, but I don't remember where.

I'm glad you like them - you are very welcome to any of my photos you like!

My village is Chilsworthy near Gunnislake in Cornwall. These photos were taken about three miles away at Cotehele though - it's a lovely old estate by the river with lots of footpaths.
