In front of Klosterkirken (The Abbey Church), you can’t miss the magnificent conker tree (or horse-chestnut tree, Aesculus hippocastanum). Every time I admire it, I wonder how many marriage proposals took place under this tree… You can see the tree through the seasons, from spring to winter. (Click to see the galleries).
I don’t know how old is this tree. But we have proof it was already there in the early 1900s !
And here are some details about the leaves and the bark, taken during a past spring. I love the light through the leaves, the scales on the trunk, the lichen on the bark…
October 2018 has been incredibly long and warm. The result was flamboyant, vibrant colourful leaves and berries. These photos has been taken at Strandboulevarden along Guldborgsund strait, and also at Svanedammen, a little park not far from the center of the town.
