Trees at night

The new trees and seats on Jameson Street have ground level lighting so you don't bump into them in the dark... did you know that some trees at night let themselves droop by up to four inches? And furthermore there are people being paid a good salary to find out more about this valuable titbit of information.

The ever fascinating and never drooping Weekend in Black and White is here.


  1. I like this photo a lot. The area looks inviting.
    I've wondered about the effects of non-natural lighting on plants. Good thing? Bad thing? I have no idea.

    1. I don't know if good or bad for trees but it seems lights make trees keep their leaves longer so making autumn leaf fall later in the year. Lights also bother some birds with robins singing at one or two o'clock in the morning!

  2. Great night-time photo. I didn't know that about trees - you're full of interesting information ;)
