I had a wonder around Liverpool at the weekend to trail my new Camera as well as the current development pics I took some of the Christmas Lights & Market Stall, here's 4 to start with.

Lovely photos Jane.

Did a load of Xmas trees get washed up in the top image?

I was wondering about that - and then realised that people must actually bring them here, and they are 'recycled' into the environment. There was such a huge number that I assumed that it was a National Trust initiative of some sort?

Ex-Christmas trees are (or were in the 1980s, I'm not sure about now) used as a way to fix otherwise movable foredunes and prevent erosion. Wooden latticework is used for the same purpose as well as of course the plantation of marram grass, which has been going on for three centuries now.

That beach looks very inviting. Good stuff Jane. I can see people walking dogs in those pics. Something has to be done locally about dogs fouling on the beaches. Some local authorities have banned dogs on beaches, in summer at least, and it isn't just the genteel places in the south, Tynemouth has a dog ban.
No beaches locally have such restrictions but I think it's time at least part of our beaches have year round dog bans. I'm a dog lover btw.

Those trees on the beach could possibly be larches, they do look like them. The larch, like the Ash unfortnately, has recently been subject of a fungus infection which is fatal and is spreading rapidly. I wonder if those trees have been dumped by a garden centre or the like ?

Aye, as Squirrel stated, they're recycled Christmas trees used to shore up the dunes. Not the artificial ones, mind. A group of our lot help the National Trust staff down there through the week as part of their DofE awards, 'planting' the old trees, picking litter and clearing sand from the paths.

The National Trust hut down Lifeboat Rd takes donations of them, if you want to ditch your tree in a useful manner come January.
