Lime tree, Greenford Road

Ten years ago today I created the 301st post for Greenford 365.

To mark the blog’s anniversary I will attempt to post a photo every day throughout 2022.

Limes, also known as “linden”, are common street trees in London where they are ignored until they block the vents of cars with their fragrant blossoms or leave a sticky residue on the paintwork. Once seasoned the wood rarely warps, so it is used for piano keys and the panels on which icons are painted. Across Europe the tree has associations with fertility, love and justice.
