Tamarisk in Brittany

Walking beside the Tamarisk trees on the north coast of Brittany is a very different experience from Cornwall as they tower above your head here some reaching 5 metres in height. Here in Bretagnethey are much sheltered than out own cherished Cornish variety which are exposed to such wild south westerlies. Some of these I photographed just outside of Roscoff harbour, looked and seemed quite ancient, maybe centuries old.
