Alien Treescape

We can see one wall of a brick house on a corner block, part of its tiled roof and parts of the red brick garden walls at the front and side. Everything else is concealed by the strange shapes of big and small poplar trees, or cypresses. The two tallest of these have grown together, like twin cones, distinguished only by their separate summits as they stand in mottled greens against a bright blue sky. The light gives the trees a peculiar quality, so that they resemble a collection of sea-sponges, or clumps of coloured steel wool.
