369. Sycamore in bud
Recently I've been able to go for walks with my Dad, who has an excellent knowledge of wildlife, plants and all things natural. Sadly very little of this has rubbed off on me over the years, so it's lovely to have things identified by him.
This morning, as we passed this tree a short distance beyond the caravan site, he said, "That's a sycamore." I'm not too bad on tree identification if I can actually see the leaves, but when it's just twigs, branches and buds I haven't a clue, so I was extremely impressed! On closer inspection of an opening bud, he was able to prove that he's right. Of course he's right - he's my Dad :)
