The perfect time to enjoy a bit of pollarding

Pollarding is what you do to trees, if you want to make them look like this, as lots of people seem to:

It’s not that warm now. But nor is it that cold now. It now feels warm because of it being less cold than it recently was. Simply weather-wise, I probably prefer June. But in June, the trees are all smothered in leaves. Pollarding effects would be hidden.

I like the bobble on top of the building, far right. Fits in well, I think.
