The Gallery: Oaks and spanish moss in Savannah.





This week's Gallery is themed around trees. Living in an area thick with tall trees, I had plenty to choose from but eventually decided on these photos, taken in Savannah, Georgia, on our holiday last April. One of the most striking things about this beautiful city is its trees, gnarled old oaks hanging with 'Spanish moss'.

The trees are everywhre, lining the shady, fountain-filled squares and avenues of this gorgeous Southern city, lending it a mysterious and and almost tropical flavour. Together with its stunning colonial architecture and the laid-back Southern vibe, they make Savannah a magical place to visit. We celebrated my birthday here, and while the presence of two Littleboys meant we didn't quite get around to the candelit meal in a plantation house overlooking the Savannah river that I'd imagined, just wandering round these beautiful streets, with the azaleas in full bloom, was enough to make it memorable.
