Your University, One Photo at a Time

Autumn Colours in the Spring

Autumn Colours in the SpringAlthough the colours of the leaves, this photo was not taken in the autumn, but rather in May. In the fall the two larger trees outside Adam Smith Building (which is slightly visible between the trees above) seemingly don’t follow the rules set by nature but rather make up their own as they grow. The colours in the photo above are the natural colours, with no editing, although the street lamp next to them might be boosting the colours a little bit.

I haven’t really featured the nature around Gilmorehill before, at least not much. Do you know of any other interesting trees or bushes or flowers or any other interesting bits of nature around campus?

    I can’t immediately think of any interesting trees (apart from the monkey puzzle tree that you’ve already featured) but did you know that every tree on campus has its own little metal disc on it with a unique number and is tracked on a database by Estates and Buildings with its age, type, current status and recommendations?

    The spreadsheet is publicly available on the website if you’re interested: link.

    • I figured that the discs were some sort of identifying thing, but didn’t know how extensive it was. I’m already making lists of things to go photograph because of the things I’ve found or thought of because of the link you gave me, thanks!
